A haulage boss crushed his jealous wife to death under the wheels of his 26-ton truck following a drunken violent row, a court heard today.
Graeme Lamb dialled 999 immediately after he ran over 58-year-old Josephine Lamb and told ambulance control: 'I thought she would f*****g move out of the way, but she didn't.'
The 48-year-old denies manslaughter and a lesser charge of causing death by careless driving while over the drink-drive limit.

Crushed to death: Josephine Lamb died after being hit by her husband's 26-tonne lorry

Newcastle Crown Court heard he had 50mg of alcohol per 100ml of breath, when the legal limit was 35mg.

A post-mortem examination revealed his wife, known as Jo, would have been almost twice over the limit.
