Abused woman was cleared of murder – but is still fighting to get kids back

A battered woman who was driven to kill her boyfriend slams the justice system for failing victims like her and her jail pal Sally Challen.

Elizabeth Hart Browne, who stabbed Stephen Rayner after years of beatings, says courts need to do more to support women trapped in dangerous relationships.

She was acquitted of murder but after two years is still fighting to get her children back.

Elizabeth, 29, says it feels like being punished twice – and is heartbroken when her kids ask why she can’t be with them.

She was in high security HMP Bronzefield, Surrey, at the same time as abused wife Sally – freed 10 days ago pending a retrial for killing her abusive and controlling husband Richard.

Along with fellow inmates, Sally took Elizabeth under her wing while she was awaiting trial for murdering Rayner, father to one of her children.
