An Exeter man has today [5 September] been sentenced to over 14 years in prison for murder.

Jason Alexander Carr, aged 35, of Chancellors Way, was charged with the murder of Sarah Fuller nee Dilks on 17 April 2019.

Carr appeared at Exeter Crown Court today [5 Sept] where he pleaded guilty to the offence of murder. The judge sentenced him to life in prison, to serve a minimum of 14 years and two months. 

Police received a call from Carr from a shop in Pinhoe, Exeter at around 4.30am on 17 April reporting that he had strangled Ms Fuller at a property in Chancellors Way. Emergency services attended the address where, sadly, she was confirmed deceased.

Detective Inspector Gregg Dawe, from the Major Crime Investigation Team, said: “This was a very sad case which resulted in the death of a mother of two. Carr was believed to be a lodger at the home of Ms Fuller at the time of the incident and admitted to the offence from the outset.

“Carr entered a guilty plea today in court and will now serve a minimum of 14 years and two months in prison for this crime.

“I would like to thank Sarah’s family and friends for their cooperation and integrity throughout the past few months and I hope that today’s outcome goes some way to bringing an element of closure to Sarah’s family, including her young children.”
