Jones, who is originally from Somerset, was charged after police found a 30cm (12in)-long blood-stained knife in the couple's home where John William Jones was found dead on 18 October 2018.

Police have said Jones confessed that she stabbed her 62-year-old husband in the chest during a heated argument.

The couple moved to the tropical Langkawi island more than a decade ago under the Malaysia My Second Home programme, which gives foreigners long-staying visas.
