Royston man jailed for murder
A ROYSTON man who beat his partner to death has been given a life sentence for murder.
Thirty-two-year-old Tomas Navickas of Ermine Close pleaded guilty to the murder of 43-year-old Svetlana Olsevka at their home on March 15, 2010.
It was revealed at Luton Crown Court today (Monday), that Navickas had been drinking heavily before he attacked Olsevka, breaking 14 ribs and tearing her liver, spleen and small bowel causing a loss of blood.
She was found at the property on March 15, 2010 after other residents in the shared home called police.
Judge Richard Foster said: “That night, in drink, you attacked Svetlana relentlessly. You kicked her and you punched her and it was your shod foot and your hands that brought about her death.

The Crow will have a full report of the trial in Thursday’s paper.
