A woman who recently admitted murdering a teenager in 2004 has been jailed for life.
Karen Tunmore, 36, walked into a police station in July to confess to the unsolved murder of 19-year-old Scott Pritchard.
She said she could no longer live with the guilt after beating him to death with a baseball bat outside his home following a dispute over money.
Tunmore, who worked as a football coach, claimed she had been drunk on vodka and alcopops when she caught up with the victim in Sunderland and then repeatedly hit him on the head.
Mr Pritchard, who had his right foot in a cast at the time, suffered catastrophic brain injuries.
Tunmore told the police she had got angry when he laughed at her and said another man called Ste who had also been involved in the dispute had told her to stop but she didnt listen.
She got rid of the murder weapon and car used in the crime and then sat back as Mr Pritchards father Robert Stacey, known as Fred, was charged with murdering his own son.
The case against Mr Stacey was eventually dropped in 2005 but the damage had already been done to his reputation.
In a Victim Personal Statement read out at Newcastle Crown Court, he said: I lost my home due to threats I received and even after I was released, I had a huge boulder thrown through my front window.
I still feel uncomfortable walking around Sunderland city centre for fear of being accused of a crime I did not commit.
The victims mother Kathleen Pritchard said in her statement she had believed that her ex-partner was the killer.
She added: For 14 years I have believed that his father Fred Stacey was responsible and have hated him since then.
Tunmore initially confessed to a friend who convinced her to go to authorities after she said voices in her head were telling her to commit murder again.
She has a history of convictions, including drunk and disorderly, public order offences, affray and carrying a blade.
Tunmore, who has an injured foot she may need to get amputated, was sentenced to life with a minimum term of 17 and a half years.
