ACCUSED Ian Hope confessed to police he had stabbed his partner after her alleged murder, a court heard.

When paramedics tended to Sarah Gosling after the alleged attack she had no blood left in her veins.

As futile efforts were made to save Ms Gosling's life, blood-soaked Hope said he had stabbed her because she had been "on at me" Special constable Kirsty Allen was one of the first officers on the scene and told of what she heard Hope say.

She said: "He had blood on his hands and clothes.

"While he was being searched he said 'It was me that stabbed her. She's been on at me'."

After his arrest and on his way to the police station, Hope is also alleged to have said 'I'm going down for this'.

Later at the police station Hope, still with dry blood on his nose and top lip and on his jacket, was asking how Ms Gosling was.

PC Shaun Young said: "He was told the victim had passed away and he was being arrested on suspicion of murder.

"He gave no reply then put his head in his hands and began sobbing."

The officer said Hope did have a bump on his head and he claims Ms Gosling hit him with a bottle."

I gave her fluid through a vein and it went through her system and was just coming out of the wound as water."
