Olivia Labinjo-Halcrow Husband Thomas Hughes
Olivia Labinjo-Halcrow and her husband Thomas Hughes were parents to their son Arthur Labinjo-Hughes.
The former couple became parents in 2014 with the birth of Arthur but Olivia and Thomas were unable to make their relationship a successful one.
Both of them soon found their soul-mate but things turned sour after their separation as Olivia went on to kill her boyfriend Gary Cunningham in 2019 and Thomas lived with his girlfriend Emma Tustin.
While Olivia, 28, was imprisoned for the murder, Thomas parented his son Arthur along with his girlfriend Emma Tustin. Arthur became a victim of ‘child torture’ when his father Thomas and his girlfriend repeatedly abused the child physically and psychologically.
Arthur died of severe traumatic brain injury in June 17, 2020 in hospital.
Tustin, 32, is found guilty of murder and two further counts of child cruelty. Meanwhile, Thomas is convicted of manslaughter for actively encouraging violence against his son and he is also found guilty of two counts of child cruelty.
Thomas and Arthur were living in Tustin’s home in Cranmore Road due to the lockdown imposed in March 2020.
Olivia Labinjo-Halcrow: Mother of Arthur Labinjo-Hughes
Olivia Labinjo-Halcrow, 28, is a mother of late Arthur Labinjo-Hughes.
She is serving her time in jail for the death of her boyfriend Gary Cunningham. Olivia and Gary, 29, were known to have met in an alcohol awareness program and since then they were involved in a toxic and violent relationship.
Olivia was found seeing another man despite being in a relationship with Gary and this may be the reason to have fueled up the hatred between them.
She viciously killed Gary with a kitchen knife in February 2019. Prior to that, she had attacked him while her son was in the home. He had sustained fatal wounds in his chest and left leg.
