THE husband of Rugby nurse Gabi Chapman has been found guilty of her murder.

Damien Fincher, 45, from Birmingham, has been standing trial at Birmingham Crown Court for the last week charged with the murder of his wife Gabi, 42.

Gabi died at her home in Winfield Street, Rugby, on Saturday, July 31 last year as a result of multiple stab injuries.

Birmingham Crown Court heard that Fincher had taken cocaine, diazepam and drank before deciding to visit his wife ahead of the attack.

Fincher said he accepted he caused Gabi’s injuries but did not remember the attack and claims it was not planned.

The jury has today (Tuesday) returned a guilty verdict.

Fincher will be sentenced on Friday, June 17.
