Terry Brown, a Welshman, killed two girlfriends. The first was slain in 1989, the second in 1995, and both were killed on FEBRUARY 26th.

Mrs. Mary Button, 34, his first victim, was strangled at the home she shared with Brown in Port Talbot, South Wales. At Swansea Crown Court he was found guilty of murder, but on appeal his conviction was reduced to manslaughter on the grounds of provocation, and he received an eight-year sentence.

Released four years later in 1993, he moved to Weymouth in Dorset and set up home with Mrs. “Tiny” Doyle, 38. After an argument Brown strangled and stabbed her, leaving her body in their living-room to be discovered 15 days later.

At Winchester Crown Court on February 2nd, 1996, he denied Mrs. Doyle’s murder, claiming he had fled only because of his previous conviction. The jury didn’t believe him and he was sentenced to life imprisonment.
