Penelope Jackson: Murderer ‘drove ex-husband to suicide’ - family claims

Husband-killer Penelope Jackson drove her former spouse to suicide, his family have claimed.

Mrs Jackson was jailed for at least 18 years last month for stabbing her husband David and then refusing to follow the 999 operator’s instructions as he bled to death on the kitchen floor.

Now it has emerged that Mrs Jackson may have driven another man to suicide, her third husband Alan Warrender.

She was married to Mr Warrender when she started an affair with murder victim Mr Jackson.

Mr Warrender’s family say that when he found out about his wife’s infidelity, he took his own life.

Speaking to the Daily Mail, an anonymous family member said: “There’s no question that the affair drove him to his death.

“After what she did to him and his family before she went on to murder her next husband, she should never be released from prison.

“She is a ruthless, greedy, angry woman. She is a danger to society.”

Mr Warrender was married to wife Beverley when he met Mrs Jackson (then Mrs Rothwell) at RAF St Athan in the Vale of Glamorgan, in South Wales, in the 1980s.

Mr Warrender had two daughters with Beverley and the couple had also adopted a son.

The couple were described as “soulmates” by the family member.

However, Mr Warrender started an affair with Mrs Jackson and tragically Beverley died of breast cancer aged 36.

She learned her husband had been unfaithful before she died.

Mr Warrender and Mrs Jackson went onto marry and had daughter called Isabelle.

They sent Mr Warrender’s two daughters to boarding school, while the adopted son went to live with Beverley’s parents after Mr Warrender and Mrs Jackson tried to return him to care.

Mr Warrender struggled for money and was forced to turn to Beverley’s parents for cash.

He ended up taking work in Saudi Arabia to make ends meet.

While he was there, Mrs Jackson started an affair with Lieutenant Colonel David Jackson.

When Mr Warrender returned from the Middle East in 1993, he found out about the affair and killed himself days later.

An inquest into his death found he had killed himself by carbon monoxide poisoning while the “balance of his mind was disturbed”.
