Strangler's sister jailed over theft.

THE sister of the Suffolk Strangler was jailed yesterday after she stole pounds 4200 worth of fabric from a shop.

Tina Robertson, 51, the younger sister of notorious serial killer Steve Wright, 53, stole material from the shop where she worked after being demoted from deputy manager to assistant.

At Ipswich Crown Court, Robertson, of Nacton, Suffolk, was jailed for eight months after admitting theft.

Robertson stole material from Fabric8 haberdashery store in Felixstowe, Suffolk, over six months.

She was arrested in July this year after a witness told her manager after spotting her stealing a roll of fabric.

Wright was jailed for life in 2008 for the murder of five prostitutes in Ipswich's red light district in late 2006.
