Rosalind Gray guilty of manslaughter
A jury at Norwich Crown Court found Marlborough Square, 54, Rosalind Gray, guilty of manslaughter.
Gray was also found guilty of conspiring to distort the course of justice with Adrian Lawrence.
The couple will be sentenced next month.
The court heard that at around 11:40 p.m. ET on August 5, an ambulance was called to the home of Lawrence, 55, on South Market Road after learning that a woman had fallen down the stairs.
Ms. Rainey was taken to James Paget Hospital with severe head injuries and then transferred to Addenbrooke’s Hospital in Cambridge, but died two days later.
On August 10, the court heard, police received a call from a woman who had been drinking with the three friends claiming that Gray had bumped into Ms. Rainey.
Prosecutor Andrew Jackson QC said
Prosecutor Andrew Jackson QC said Gray was “rather violent” and “deliberately” pushed her friend up the stairs.
The two had discussed going on vacation together and texts revealed a £ 200 argument believed to be owed to the deceased, he said.
The court heard that the anonymous witness was ordered to hide in a room while the ambulance was present “because he could not be trusted to remain silent.”
Gray and Lawrence “then put more pressure” on and met the witness in a pub “to clear their story,” police said.
Gray denied the murder
Det Ch Insp Mike Brown of the Norfolk Constabulary said: “Rosalind Gray and Adrian Lawrence immediately knew the seriousness of Rosalind’s actions and went to great lengths to cover them up even after Linda’s death.”
