Teen murderer who knifed young mum to death back in prison months after release

A teenage killer has been locked back up behind bars after less than six months of freedom.

Jordan Jobson was sentenced to life in prison for stabbing Samantha Madgin, 18, to death, as a 15-year-old in 2007.

The convicted murderer from Newcastle was released on license in December last year but has already been taken off the streets after breaching one of her license conditions.

ChronicleLive reports Jobson will remain in custody until her case is reviewed by the parole board.

On Monday, her victim's mum, Alison, spoke of the rollercoaster of emotions she has to face since Samantha's killer was released.

The 55-year-old said: "We are not allowed to find out what she's done, but I just hope that nobody has been hurt.

"We are just left wondering what she's done. It's never-ending for us."

Samantha was just 18 years old when she was killed, in August 2007.

She had been enjoying her first night out since giving birth to son Callum when she fatally crossed paths with Jobson, who she had never met before.

The killer, who had been drinking vodka and taking cocaine, armed herself with a knife after a disturbance broke out in an alleyway, Newcastle Crown Court was told.

Jobson stabbed unarmed Samantha multiple times in the face, arms, and chest.

One of the blows pierced her lung and severed a major artery near her heart, meaning nothing could be done to save Samantha’s life.

The killing left Samantha's son Callum, who was just 10 weeks old at the time, without a mum.

Jobson, from Walker in Newcastle, was later convicted of murder and jailed for life. She was originally handed a minimum term of 15 years.

However, after two separate appeals, that was reduced to 11 years.

Jobson had been eligible for parole in 2018 and was moved to an open prison in preparation for her release.

But ChronicleLive revealed how she was returned to a higher-security jail just three months before her minimum term came to an end following an incident at HMP Askham Grange, an open prison in Yorkshire.

It is understood she had threatened another inmate.

In April 2019, just weeks before she was due to come before the parole board, she scuppered her chance of release again after failing to comply with conditions when she was allowed out on day release.

Samantha’s family have since fought tirelessly to prevent her release.

But Alison was told last November that her appeal against the board’s decision to release Jobson had failed and the killer would be freed on license.

"I have always tried to get through life by not focusing on her, but to focus on the good things," said Alison.

"But when she did get released it just brought everything back."

And Alison believes Jobson's latest behaviour shows she is not ready to be back on the streets.

"She hasn't learned anything," she said.

"Is this going to be the pattern now? Is she institutionalised now? She's not a kid anymore, she's an adult."
