A woman who was serving life imprisonment for the murder of a man whose remains were dumped in Lynn’s town centre has died.

Karen Morris, who was 33, died in hospital in Derby on Saturday. National press reports said she had been held at the Foston Hall prison in the city.

She and her partner, Stephen Parton, were both in prison for the murder of 22-year-old Nelvaughn Brade in November 2004.

The couple attacked him with weapons including a crossbow, an axe and knives before butchering his body.

At the time, the Lynn News reported that body parts were dumped in bins in the town centre.

The couple then handed themselves in to police in Hunstanton, having previously asked a passer-by for directions to the police station.

Morris and Parton were jailed for life at Birmingham Crown Court in June 2005. Morris was told she would serve a minimum of 15 years before she could be considered for parole.
