A MAN who killed his former girlfriend in a brutal knife attack in South Ealing has been convicted of murder.

Anna Jedrkowiak died after being found with multiple stab injuries in Roberts Alley, off Church Gardens, in May 2022.

The 21-year-old, known to friends and family as Ania, had finished work at a restaurant in Ealing and was walking home with a friend.

She was the victim of a pre-meditated attack by her former boyfriend, Dennis Akpomedaye.

Akpomedaye was arrested within 22 hours of her murder after CCTV tracked his movements.

After his arrest, Akpomedaye was revealed to be in debt, without a job and unable to accept the end of a relationship.

Det Chief Insp Brian Howie said: "Anna’s life was taken by someone who is cowardly but extremely dangerous.

“Anna was scared of him and attempted to end the relationship. When she did this, he said to her ‘We will be together no matter what … I will find you’.

“She had moved away to start what should have been an exciting new life in London but now will never be able to fulfil that promise.”

Akpomedaye, 29, of Newport, was found guilty at Kingston Crown Court today (25). He will be sentenced at the same court on Wednesday, May 31.
