Who was Karen Dempsey ?
A 32-year-old man has been charged with the murder of his ‘devoted’ mother who was stabbed to death outside a pub in Liverpool, just six miles from where little Olivia Pratt-Korbel was shot dead by a masked mobster in the the same day.
Karen Dempsey, 55, was found in the car park outside the Brambles pub in Cherryfield Drove, Kirkby with a stab wound to the chest on Monday, and tragically died later in hospital.

Mrs Dempsey’s family today paid tribute to her grandmother, calling her a “beautiful, lively and compassionate woman” and describing her death as “untimely” and “cruel”.
In a statement issued by Merseyside Police, they said: “Karen was a beautiful, vivacious and compassionate woman who always had a smile on her face and lit up a room.”
“Her enthusiasm of hers for her life was contagious and she left others breathless. She loved being around her family and friends.
‘Karen was dedicated to her work and by helping others she made a real difference in people’s lives.
“She was a fantastic advocate for social justice for over 30 years and her loss will be felt throughout Kirkby.
“As a family, we are devastated by her untimely death – it was her willingness to help that led to her being cruelly taken from us.
Her family and her friends will miss her very much: her death has left a great void in our lives.
