Episode 599: 3 women sentenced for their role in covering up murder of Katie Simpson

Three women who admitted helping evil Jonathan Cresswell cover up details around the death of showjumper Katie Simpson were handed down suspended prison sentences today. Hayley Robb, Jill Robinson and Rose De Montmorency Wright each believed that Katie had taken her own life and had not been murdered when they helped Cresswell wash his clothing and hide the fact he had assaulted the 21-year-old in the hours before her death. At Derry Magistrates Court journalist Ciaran O’Neill watched as the three women were sentenced for their roles in the secret pact around her death and as her mother’s victim impact statement revealed that Cresswell had sat at her hospital bedside as she died.
