A Romanian man has been found guilty of murdering his wife in Lichfield.

Florin Marion Codreanu, 30, was found guilty of killing his wife Marie by strangling her at their home in St Michael’s Road on January 16.

Codreanu was sentenced to life in prison to serve a minimum of 15 years for killing his Skegness-born wife.

Detective Chief Inspector Brandon Langley said:

“This was a brutal attack on a young woman. Our sympathies go to Marie’s family and friends who have conducted themselves with immense courage and dignity throughout the trial.

“We would like to take this opportunity of thanking all those people who came forward with information that helped with this inquiry. Staffordshire Police treats domestic abuse very seriously and our message to victims is to contact us and we will do all we can to protect you.”

A statement from Marie’s family read:

“We are satisfied with the conviction. We now wish to be left alone to grieve over the death of Marie.

“We would like to thank Staffordshire Police for all of their efforts during the course of the investigation and all the support from the family liaison officers.”
