Alex Jeffrey, 34, has just been sentenced to 20 years in jail in New York City for the murder of his girlfriend, Merceda Young, who was 35, in 2013.

Jeffrey, who was married to another woman at the time, stabbed Young 22 times while they were having sex in his Jeep when she told him she was pregnant. He then dumped her body.

Paulette Young, the sister of Merceda, said: “Every time you’re eligible for parole, I will be there to remind the parole board what you did.”
