A teenage mum who stabbed her boyfriend through the heart in a “fit of anger” during a night out has been jailed for life.
Martyna Ogonowska had only been dating 23-year-old Filip Jaskiewicz for a few days when the murder took place.
The court heard the pair had been out with Ogonowska’s two friends and her mother at the Solstice bar, in Peterborough.
The four returned to the victim’s car in the early hours of Sunday, October 21, as her mother went home, and an argument began over Mr Jaskiewicz’s driving.
Mr Jaskiewicz stopped his car and Ogonowska proceeded to walk out of the car.
“He started to follow me and we started to have an argument,” she said in a previous hearing during the trial.
“He grabbed me by the neck, pushed me and I fell on my knees. He then grabbed me by the neck and started to touch my legs.
“He said that I would be with him always.”
The trial previously heard how Mr Jaskiewicz started touching Ogonowska on her breast and legs as they were arguing, Cambridgeshire Live reports.
At just after 5am, while parked 18-year-old Ogonowska stabbed Mr Jaskiewicz as he looked at his mobile phone.
She ran off with the knife, followed by her two friends, who believed she had punched the victim.
Mr Jaskiewicz was found dead by a member of the public about two hours later and at roughly the same time Ogonowska took a taxi to Thorpe Wood Police Station, with the knife, and handed herself in to police.
Ogonowska, a mother of one, of Victoria Place, Peterborough, denied murder and having a bladed article, but was found guilty by a jury at Cambridge Crown Court, today.
She was sentenced to life with a minimum term of 17 years.
