“Mother and sex offender lover jailed for the murder of her ex-husband “A mother and her sex offender lover has been jailed for more than 20 years each for the murder of her ex-husband during a “medieval duel” in an east London tunnel.
Asta Juskauskiene, 35, arranged for her new 25-year-old partner, Mantas Kvedaras, to fight the father of her daughter Giedruis Juskauskas for the right to be with her.
But in the confrontation that followed, Kvedaras – a convicted rapist – stabbed his unarmed and drunk rival 35 times in the chest, neck, and face within seconds.
Such was the ferocity of the attack, in Newham in the early hours of 17 June last year, that several of Mr. Juskauskas’s bones were found to have been damaged by strikes from the knife.
The following day the two lovers celebrated by going out for pizza.
Care worker Juskauskiene, from Crayford, was jailed for 24 years at the Old Bailey on Friday after being found guilty of murder and perverting the course of justice at a previous hearing.
Her lover, of no fixed abode, was jailed for 22 years after admitting the killing.
The pair initially formed a relationship over social media while Kvedaras was serving a prison sentence in Lithuania – their home nation – for sexually assaulting a teenage girl there.
Kearns then arrived in the UK to meet Juskauskiene, just five days before she orchestrated the fight with 42-year-old Juskauskas, who was also from the Baltic state. read more
