Jodie Betteridge, 30, who months ago had split up with the suspect, 34-year-old Alan Bennett, was butchered on her doorstep in front of her children on March 24.
"She was wearing a blue dressing gown and screaming, 'I still love you!' There was blood everywhere," one neighbor told The Sun. "He stabbed her about ten times."
Another neighbor, John Chambers, 69, said "She was attacked right in front of her children. They were terrified and had to run next door to escape him."
The incident occurred shortly after the murder of Bennett's current girlfriend, 46-year-old Lynne Freeman. Bennett was living with Freeman.
Freeman's kids have released a statement, which Cleveland Police have posted on their Facebook page.
The children, Sarah Helm, 28; James Helm, 27; Kimberley Helm, 25; and Lauren Freeman,18, wrote, "She was thriving in life and loved the volunteer work that she did in her church, and as a street angel for Redcar Beacons, always putting others before herself. She adored every one of her children and loved being a Grandma.
"She wore her heart on her sleeve, always made an effort for people and she really would go the extra mile. She gave so much and never asked for anything in return and we'll always be proud of her."
Bennett was arrested on the scene and is currently in police custody. Police have stated that while the two victims have been named locally, formal identification still has not taken place.
