VINCENT Tabak has been found guilty of murdering landscape architect Joanna Yeates.

Miss Yeates, whose brother Chris lives in Ludwick Way, Welwyn Garden City, went missing from her home in Clifton, Bristol, on December 17 last year.

Her body was found dumped on Christmas Day, following appeals from her parents David and Theresa, and her brother, for the killer to come forward.

This afternoon (Friday) the jury of six men and six women have returned a 10-2 majority verdict finding Tabak guilty of her murder.

The 33-year-old had admitted her manslaugher, but denied murder.

Tabak had lived in the same block of flats as Jo in Canynge Road, Bristol, with his girlfriend Tanja Morson.

Miss Morson is a former pupil of Brookmans Park private school, Queenswood, where she studied until 1995.
