Hyde woman sentenced to jail for manslaughter of Rees Howarth

A 28-year-old woman has been sentenced to prison following the death of Rees Howarth in Tameside.

Katie Yeomans, of Thorsby Avenue, Hyde, pleaded guilty to manslaughter on November 1 and on Wednesday (November 8) she was sentenced to five years and three months in prison for manslaughter on the grounds of loss of control.

The attack

On Sunday, April 23, at around 2.55pm, police were called to reports of a domestic disturbance at a house on Thorsby Avenue in Hyde.

When emergency services arrived they found a man had been stabbed and despite medical assistance, he was pronounced dead.

The police investigation established that Yeomans and Rees had been out with friends in Oldham the night before the horrific attack. The couple went back to Yeoman’s home where they carried on drinking into the afternoon.

At around 2:25pm, mobile phone evidence showed Yeomans attempt to contact the emergency services for one second before hanging up.

She then called a family member who arrived in a taxi and saw Rees covered in blood, in the hallway. They contacted another family member who rang the emergency services.

Police and paramedics attended the scene where they found Rees had been stabbed in the chest.

Tribute

Duncan Thorpe of GMP’s Major Incident Support Unit said: “Whatever sentence is imposed it will not be enough and it will sadly not bring Rees back. Of course, my thoughts are with Rees family and his loved ones, no parent, child, or friend should have their loved one taken away by someone else in this manner.”

In a tribute dedicated to Rees, his loved ones said that Rees was an ‘active and outgoing man, who was funny and loving. He had a heart of gold and was caring and kind-hearted.

He was a larger-than-life character who will be sadly missed by all who loved him’ and have expressed that their family and loved ones have privacy while they continue to grieve for their loss.
