Police Officer Beats Wife To Death Because ‘She Lost Her Sex Drive’

A decorated police officer accused of murdering his wife because ‘she lost her sex drive’ is in court today. Adrian Goldsmith – commonly known as Otis – has been accused of bludgeoning his wife on the porch of their home which, ironically, is located next to the police station where he worked. Goldsmith had been a police officer for the last 28 years.

Via Mirror:

A jury at Stafford Crown Court , where Goldsmith is on trial for murder , yesterday heard a 999 call he made to police claiming his wife attacked him.

In the recording, Goldsmith said: “My wife tried to kill me, I think she’s dead.”

Officers raced to their home at 1.13pm on March 26 last year and found Goldsmith, who had served in the police for 28 years, holding a smashed drinking glass and a knife.

Pictures seen by the jury of seven men and five women showed Jill’s lifeless body lying in a pool of blood in the porch of their home.

In interview Goldsmith said she had come at him with the knife “like a whirling dervish” and stabbed him.

The court heard the couple, who married in May 2014, had problems including Jill’s lack of sex drive caused by her starting the menopause.
