Crocodile tears: Tracie Andrews during a press conference in the days after her crime
One of Britain’s most notorious murderers walks free from jail this week after serving her sentence for a crime which robbed a family of a much-loved son.
But Tracie Andrews refuses to apologise for the brutal stabbing of her fiancé Lee Harvey.
Andrews, 41, insists it is now her ‘human right’ to get on with her life.
She will go by the name Tia Carter and has had £5,000 surgery to alter her distinctive jaw and dyed her blonde hair brown.
The former barmaid was jailed for life for killing Mr Harvey, 25, in 1996 during a row as they drove in a country road.
She cut his throat and stabbed him 37 times with a penknife in the back, face, neck and chest.
After leaving him to bleed to death, she concocted a story about a road-rage incident and blamed the other driver for the attack.
Two days after the murder, Andrews went on television holding the hand of Mr Harvey’s mother Maureen to appeal for information to catch the killer.
As her release grows closer, her family has urged her to repent publicly but she continues to insist she owes no one anything and wants to pick up her life where she left off.
