A former model’s violent past led on to her killing her boyfriend when he told her their relationship was over.
Ellishia Allen, 28, stabbed Karl Bloxham in the chest with a kitchen knife after he told her he was leaving her.
She attacked him when he returned to their shared flat in Spruce Grove, Hucknall, on July 29 last year, after a trip to the pub.
She was sentenced to a minimum of 14 years in prison when she admitted murder at Nottingham Crown Court on Wednesday.
Mr Bloxham, 39, and Allen had been together since about 2010 but the court heard their relationship was often ‘volatile’.
Allen is a former glamour model who was signed to an agency and according to her Facebook page appeared in Nuts magazine, which closed in 2014.
The court heard she had been an alcoholic and had the characteristics of emotionally unstable personality disorder.
Her previous convictions included assaulting a police officer and for being disruptive while drunk on an aeroplane.
And she bragged online of handing out a ‘beatin’ to someone, writing as a Facebook status in 2010: “is beatin the **** outa sum1 n findin great pleasure in it! all that tension inside, u say where the recovery in that? oh theres gud recovery i say, oh i do!
“oh yea, its someone else, but luvin it! feel great nw, thinks its time for round 2! i feel mint nw! lol x”
Mr Bloxham’s body was found at the home the couple shared in Spruce Grove.
Speaking after the sentencing, Det Insp Andy Bateman, of Notts Police, said: “I feel enormously sorry for the parents of Karl Bloxham and for his sister and friends.
“I’m also conscious that he had children from a previous relationship and I’m very sorry they have been deprived of him.
“Today’s events won’t bring him back but I would hope that Allen is able to complete treatment in prison and have time to reflect upon her actions.”
