A man has admitted murdering his partner who was stabbed to death in a taxi in Birmingham.

Mother-of-three Natasha Trevis, 22, of Weoley Castle, died at the scene of the stabbing in Northfield on 7 August.

Junior Saleem Oakes, 28, of Dimsdale Road, Northfield, pleaded guilty at Birmingham Crown Court.

He was jailed for life and must serve at least 22 years. Miss Trevis had two daughters aged three and 18 months and a seven-month-old son.

In a tribute previously issued through West Midlands Police, the victim's mother, Joanne Hewitt, said her daughter was "so loving, so caring".

She added: "Her children are asking for their mum and I have to tell them she has gone to the stars and is looking down over them.

"She was a niece, a cousin, a mother and sister and everyone will forever miss her."
