The ex-boyfriend of a “prodigiously talented” maths graduate has been jailed for life with a minimum of 15 years after admitting her murder.

Joe Atkinson, 25, pleaded guilty to stabbing Poppy Devey Waterhouse to death in an attack “fuelled by jealousy” at a block of flats in Leeds last year.

The parents of Ms Devey Waterhouse read a series of emotional victim impact statements in court, describing how her death left behind a “dense, grey fog”.

Prosecutors said Atkinson had failed to come to terms with Ms Devey Waterhouse breaking off their three-year relationship, which ended in October 2018.

In the early hours of 14 December, Atkinson burst into the flat he still shared with his former girlfriend and used a kitchen knife to inflict more than 100 separate injuries.
