Yorkshire woman admits murdering husband in violent attack at their …
A 44-year-old Rotherham woman has today pleaded guilty to murdering her husband at their home in Catcliffe in 2021.
Paramedics and police officers arrived at Caster’s home address where they found her husband, 43-year-old Kevin Caster, gravely injured. He was taken to hospital where, despite the best efforts of medical professionals, he was sadly pronounced dead later that evening.
Detective Inspector John Fitzgibbons, senior investigating officer, said: “Firstly I wish to take this opportunity to send my condolences to Kevin’s family and loved ones, as they continue to come to terms with their loss.

“The information we gathered during our enquiries sadly revealed a history of arguments between the two and on the night of his death, witnesses reported hearing Caster shouting at Kevin and a number of people reported seeing Caster making violent gestures, as though she was stamping on something, through the window.
“CCTV footage showed Caster violently stamping on Kevin while he lay on the floor. She then waited an hour and a half before calling for help. By which time nothing could be done to save Kevin.
“We also learned that Caster changed her account of how Kevin came to be injured to those who ran to her aid that evening after hearing her shouting in the street. To some, she said he’d been in a fight, others she told he’d taken pills and had had a seizure.
“This is a tragic case where not only do those who knew and loved Kevin have to face his loss, but Caster’s actions effectively mean they lose her too, as she now faces a significant custodial sentence.” Caster, formerly of Harmony Way, Catcliffe, has been remanded in custody. She will appear before Sheffield Crown Court tomorrow (Thursday, April 20) for sentencing.
