Son tells how he tried to save his mum from killer.

THE son of a woman killed her the partner she met on the internet has told how he tried to save her.

Pamela Jackson was killed by a man she began seeing after meeting on an online dating site.

Adrian Muir battered the 55-yearold to death, before taping her up in a duvet and burying her body in a shallow grave on the Pennine moors.

After seeing the killer jailed for 18 years for his mum's manslaughter, Andrew Jackson has told how he had suspicions about Muir from the start. He desperately tried to warn Pamela about the dangers of meeting strangers online.

The 36-year-old youth worker, from Consett, said: "We had many a fall out about the online dating and her meeting men. She had been doing it for about three or four years. I was just trying to make her see sense and settle down with someone but it just wasn't in her personality. I worried about her but I never imagined anything like this would happen.

"I didn't trust Adrian from day one.

He was always edgy. But I had to stand by what my mum thought. But I never thought he would go to the lengths he did."

The jury cleared Muir of Pamela's murder and found him guilty of manslaughter, saving him from a life sentence yet leaving her family devastated.

"We just don't believe justice has been done," Andrew added.
