A violent woman who murdered a vulnerable father six years after killing her partner has been jailed for life today.

Antoinette Van Dungey, 43, stabbed 41 year-old Carl Everson three times in the neck after inviting him to her birthday party at her home in Sugden Way, Barking.

Van Dungey had already served a 42-month prison sentence for the manslaughter of her partner Kenneth Quy in 2004.

In July 2010 she was placed under a Violent Offender Order by Barking Magistrates banning her from inviting the vulnerable or disabled to her home.

But three months later she befriended the victim and invited him to her home to celebrate her birthday.

Mr Everson, who has two children and three stepchildren, was then kicked and stamped on by Van Dungey’s friend Kelly Gentry, 40, before Van Dungey plunged a knife into his throat.

Gentry, of Bedford Road, Tottenham, was cleared of murder but convicted of grievous bodily harm with intent for taking part in the attack.

She will be sentenced on September 16 following the preparation of a pre-sentence report.

In a victim impact statement read to the court, the victim’s sister Anita Everson said: “Carl’s death has devastated the family. We are heartbroken he has been taken away from us in such a brutal and savage way and we are still trying to come to terms with the devastation it has caused.

“They took advantage of Carl’s generosity, stealing his cash and robbing us of a son, father and brother.

“Carl was vulnerable and unable to defend himself that night and they knew this.”
