22nd January 2008, police and paramedics sped to Pantyffynnon Road following 999 calls made by Maxine William's mother and 15-year-old brother.
Julie Williams said of her partner: "He's unconscious. He's bleeding to death. I'm freaking out here. He's gasping for breath. It's thick, thick blood here — it's like a swimming pool."

In the backgroubnd was the voice of Maxine Williams saying "The c**t. I’ve done it. I have killed him mam. I’m going to eat him mam, for us. I’m going to kill him and eat him up."

The paramedics battled to save Bernard Evans after finding him on the kitchen floor, but he was pronounced dead at the scene.

He had stab wounds to his arm and chest, an artery had been cut.

Maxine Williams became very agitated when the police arrived and a Taser stungun had to be used in the course of her arrest. On the way to Carmarthen Police Station, she told officers: "I'm glad I stabbed him. I hope he dies."
Later, after being told Mr Evans had died, she said: "I'm glad he's dead. He's dead because I killed him — he deserved it."


October 2008, Swansea crown court was told that while Williams accepted responsibility for the death of Mr Evans, she claimed she did not murder him.
Williams did not give evidence in her defence.

Before sending the jury out to consider its verdict the judge, Mr Justice Nigel Davis, told them Williams had offered police three explanations but had declined to enter the witness box.


Tuesday 28th October 2008, Williams found guilty of murder.

She was ordered to serve a life sentence, with a minimum term of 13 years. Williams refused to attend court for sentencing.
