'Beautiful' mum, 51, stabbed to death pictured as family pay heartbreaking tribute

A "BEAUTIFUL" mum stabbed to death at a house in Birmingham has been pictured for the first time today.

Marie Gladders, 51, suffered fatal stab wounds in Stockland Green, Birmingham, last Thursday.

Her heartbroken family this afternoon paid tribute – saying "Sleep tight mom".

They said in a statement released by police: “We are beyond devastated and heartbroken over the tragic loss of our beautiful mother, daughter, grandmother, sister, partner and friend.

“To lose her in such a cruel way is deeply saddening, and we pray that justice is served for her.

"We hope that she is at peace now. 

“Sleep tight mom until we meet you again, we love you to infinity! ”

'SLEEP TIGHT'

Detective Inspector Stuart Mobberley, from the West Midlands Police homicide team, added: “My thoughts remain with Marie’s family who are being supported by specialist officers at this difficult time.”

Mark Masefield, 52, was charged with murder on November 13 in relation to the death of Ms Gladders.

He appeared at Birmingham Magistrates Court on Saturday and was placed in custody.

A post mortem examination concluded Ms Gladders had died of stab injuries.

Last week, a construction worker died in Birmingham after falling 100ft from a church steeple.

The 64-year-old was working on St Nicholas Church in Kings Norton, Birmingham.

Meanwhile, Birmingham City Centre Police have slammed heartless bystanders who were heard yelling "jump" when a man threatened to fall from a car park in the city centre.

Cops told people to "have compassion" following the sickening actions.
