Stabbed His Girlfriend More Than 30 Times

The auto factory worker attacked and ran over 25-year-old college student Lauren Bloomer at her home in Tamworth.

Stafford Crown Court was told that Notman did not know “what was real and what was not” when he killed her.

Notman pleaded guilty after prosecutors accepted psychiatric evidence, including analysis of a 17-minute mobile phone recording made by the victim during the murder, that Notman could not have formed the required intent for the murder.

Judge May said Notman had killed Miss Bloomer in “the most unexpected and gruesome way” during a two-and-a-half-minute attack while she handed down her sentence.

The judge said: “I am pretty sure that the psychotic state Jake Notman was in was, at least in part, a response to the cannabis he had ingested.

“There is an obvious lesson … that cannabis can be very dangerous. It is an illegal drug for good reason. ”

At Notman’s trial, he denied murdering Ms. Bloomer, claiming that she had experienced an “extreme flowery psychiatric episode” and that he had totally lost touch with reality.

The trial was told that Ms. Bloomer recorded her own murder on a mobile phone after seeking advice online about the “weed trip” her partner suffered.

Opening the case last week, prosecutor Deborah Gould told jurors that Ms. Bloomer had activated her phone to record what was happening “like something out of the movie Scream.”

Describing what could be seen or heard in the recording, which began when the couple was in a bedroom, Ms. Gould told the court: “It shows the defendant when he started attacking Lauren Bloomer, at first with his bare hands.

“She was just trying to take care of him in this state of cannabis disorder.”

The jury heard that the defendant became aggressive nine minutes after the recording, about a minute before Ms. Bloomer was heard saying “please help me” to her aunt on a call on a second phone.

Neighbors saw Notman, who worked at the Jaguar Land Rover facility in Solihull, as he ran over the body of his partner.

He then dialed 999 at 1.32 am and told the operator that “they had told him that he had killed my girlfriend.”

Explaining the Crown’s decision not to provide evidence on the murder charge, Prosecutor QC Ben Douglas-Jones said: “All three experts agree that based on evidence, including recording, the defendant’s psychiatric reaction to the Cannabis is so deep that he could not discern what was real and what was not.

“In particular, he couldn’t discern whether Lauren Bloomer was dead or alive, real or not.”

Commenting after the case, Mark Paul from CPS said: “Notman had ingested cannabis, which triggered a psychotic episode.

“Three forensic consulting psychiatrists concluded that Notman had experienced a very unusual type of psychosis at the time of the murder, which meant that he could not form an intention to commit murder, not even the type of intention that can still be formed when a person have used drugs or alcohol.

“This expert advice meant that there was no longer a realistic chance of conviction for the original murder charge, and Notman has now accepted responsibility for the unlawful murder of Lauren Bloomer by pleading guilty to manslaughter.

“We fully explained to Lauren’s family why she was unable to pursue the murder charge.”

Ms. Bloomer’s family said in a statement: “As Lauren’s family, we feel that regardless of the outcome of the trial, nothing can bring us back to Lauren or make up for the pain we feel.

“We ask that you respect both the right of our family and her friends to cry in privacy at this difficult time.”
