In domestic law on October 5, 2011 at 5:00 pm

A TEENAGER who stabbed a young mother-of-two to death in a “ludicrous” argument about garlic bread was told today he would serve a minimum of 15 years behind bars.
Jamie Ellis murdered Alami Gotip, 22, in a “brutal and frenzied” knife attack at her home in the Dedridge area of Livingston, West Lothian, while her two young children slept upstairs.
She was stabbed around 40 times after Ellis, 18, “snapped” because she had been “moaning at him” over his failure to make garlic bread for dinner, the High Court in Edinburgh heard.

Jamie Ellis murdered Alami Gotip, 22, in a “brutal and frenzied” knife attack at her home in the Dedridge area of Livingston, West Lothian, while her two young children slept upstairs.

Ellis, who was in an on-off relationship with Ms Gotip, was told by Judge Lord Glennie he had robbed two young children of their mother.

The teenager pleaded guilty to the murder last month.

After being handed a life sentence, he was told he will not be considered for parole until he has spent at least 15 years in custody.

Passing sentence, Lord Glennie said: “Your actions not only took the life of someone you say you loved but deprived two young children of their mother.

She had two young daughters from a previous relationship with Neil Henderson and, despite their relationship ending in November last year, they remained close friends and shared childcare responsibilities.

Ms Gotip and Ellis broke up several times during their relationship and he was jealous of her continued friendship with Mr Henderson.

After the murder, Ellis, crying and with blood and cuts on his hand, went to his cousin’s house and told him: “I don’t know what I’ve done.”

Ellis later told his mother over the phone: “I have done something bad. I have stabbed Alami.”

He added: “It’s not that I am a horrible person but s*** happens.”

Victor Roman, 42, shot and killed his girlfriend, Trudy Huerta, 35, and then turned the gun on himself, according to authorities.

Silver City police were called to the 4200 block of Kiva Place, on a report of shots fired at 8:03 p.m. Upon arrival, officers found Huerta lying on the ground in front Building 1 in the complex with a gunshot wound to the middle of her back, according to a police incident report. Two shell casings of what appeared to be shotguns rounds were located just south of Huerta’s body, the report states.

Roman was found nearby sitting in gold Honda with the engine running, slumped over the steering wheel, a gunshot wound to face and a black shotgun resting across his chest, authorities said. Both Huerta and Roman were pronounced dead the scene by EMS.

Silver City police said Huerta was attempting to stop Roman from taking their son from the apartment when the crime occurred.

Huerta had an order of protection against Roman going back to 2001. Huerta had taken out another protection order against Roman but later dropped it saying, “He threatened me if I wouldn’t because he was on parole at the time,” court documents state.

On May 5, in court documents, Huerta wrote that she wanted to terminate the protection order against Roman because “we are going to go to counseling to get along for my son, our son. He (Victor) is going to get help. We love each other and need to make this work for our family but still need to support his child. We love each other very much!!!”

Most recently the couple had each filed protection orders against one another in March. On March 19, Huerta was arrested for battery on a household member and on March 24, Roman was charged with violating a protection order.

Roman was sentenced to 8 1/2 years in prison in May 2003 on five felony charges, said Shannon McReynolds, acting public information with the New

Huerta leaves five young children, ages 1, 9, 12, 14, and 17. Huerta was employed at Burger King and worked the second shift. Roman worked occasionally for All Glass MD in Silver City.
