Woman stabs her fourth husband to death during fight over an iPad charger

The retired chartered accountant, Penelope Jackson, 65, has been charged with murdering David Jackson, 78, at the property in the village of Berrow, near Weston-super-Mare, on Saturday night.

Mrs Jackson’s son-in-law, Jeremy Mullins, said the couple had been in the kitchen at their bungalow in a quiet cul-de-sac when a quarrel apparently began.

He said, “It was one of those petty rows, apparently over a phone charger for an iPad. They both wanted to charge up their devices and there was only one charger, so they started rowing about who could use it first.”

Mr Jackson, who was a former senior Army officer and captain of a local golf club, died from his injuries. A post-mortem confirmed he suffered from a number of stab wounds.

Other relatives confirmed that Mrs Jackson had been married three times before. 

Relatives added that the Jacksons had been married for 25 years with a daughter and other children from previous relationships.

Shocked neighbours of the Jacksons said they had ‘never heard a cross word’ exchanged between the couple.
