Who is David Maggs?

David Maggs confessed to the murder during a 999 call after 74-year-old mother-of-two Linda wanted to end her marriage.

Body camera footage shows the moment Maggs was arrested at his home and police handcuffed him while he was sitting on a couch.

Maggs tells the officers, “I’ve had enough,” before repeating “Oh, God, I’ve had enough.”

When he asks what he’s had enough of, Maggs replies, “She tried to rob me of two houses.” Two houses, for God’s sake.

Cctv Footage

As the footage continues, Maggs says, “I spent five months in the hospital last year… And she came to see me three times.”

“And for the rest of the time she ransacked the house, seized all the paperwork, destroyed all the paperwork, and tried to reclaim both this house and the other house.”

The footage was shown to the jury at Cardiff Crown Court along with a 999 call where Maggs told an operator about the attack on her home.

On the call, retired accountant Maggs says, “I just killed the wife.”

The operator replies: ‘Do you have what regret?’

Maggs repeats: ‘I think I just killed the wife.’

When the operator says, ‘Is she your wife?’ Maggs says: ‘I stabbed her.’

The operator then asks Maggs if he still has the knife with him, he says no, and goes on to tell him that Linda is in bed.

When asked if he’s still breathing or talking, Maggs can be heard crying and saying, “I don’t know, I just lost him.”

He then he says: ‘Can you come please? Please help. Oh, God help me!

Arrested

Body camera footage shows the moment Maggs was arrested at his home and handcuffed by police while sitting on a couch.

Later, in her interview with police, Maggs said, “I’ve been married to her for 30 years and she doesn’t know how to keep her mouth shut, so I’m over her.”

Prosecutor Michael Jones QC said earlier in the trial that Maggs entered her wife’s bedroom armed with two large kitchen knives and repeatedly stabbed her in her bed.

Jones said: “He was particularly shaken by the financial settlement of the divorce and believed that he was going to lose significantly to his wife.”

He accused her of taking financial advantage of him and of hiding her own money from her.

“He thought that she could win financially and in her mind in a dishonest way.”

The court heard the Nisi couple’s divorce was due to be granted in March 2021, but they had continued to live together but apart within their £200,000 marital home when Linda was murdered on February 6.

Maggs, of Sebastapol, Pontypool denies murder but admits manslaughter on the basis of diminished responsibility.

The trial, which is expected to last around four weeks, continues.
