Ms. Jones’s body remained undiscovered for three weeks until the police broke into the house the morning of New Year’s Eve last year.
Foran had been hiding nearby to see the police kick the front door minutes before they found his body in the ‘splattered blood’ bathroom.
The court heard that he had telephoned his mother in Ireland minutes later and said: ‘I will be killed.
‘She drove me crazy. Almost ten years now. Done. He has stuck my head. I’m fucking
Police launched a nationwide
Police launched a nationwide manhunt for Foran who was captured on CCTV leaving Ms. Jones’ flat shortly after the murder.
They eventually received a tip-off and were able to arrest him after they found him begging outside a Poundland store in Liverpool.
In a second phone call to his mother he made while in custody, Foran admitted: ‘I put up for nearly ten years with her.
‘Through hell, I went with that family. Through hell, they put me through. I couldn’t go outside the door without having an argument.
‘When I did snap, I did snap. That’s what you get for it. She pushed me for years.
‘I am sorry for what I have done. I did not mean to do what I have done. They controlled me for 11 years. They broke me.
‘I couldn’t even make a cup of tea in the house. They broke me. I had had enough.
‘I loved her but they broke me. Enough was enough.’
Foran had initially denied murder but today he changed his plea to guilty and was jailed for a minimum of 17 years at Wolverhampton Crown Court.
Who is neighbor Keith O’Dwyer?
One of his neighbors, Keith O’Dwyer, 35, was jailed for 16 months for assisting an offender after it was discovered that he had driven Foran to Liverpool in his Range Rover.
At the time neighbors had been shocked to hear about the crime and said Ms. Jones was a young mother who lived in the flat with her partner and their baby.
One said: ‘I heard banging at about 2 am. It sounded like someone was banging my side window.
‘It was really loud and woke me. Then we heard shouting but I didn’t get up to check anything.
‘I know the couple but they are very quiet. They just keep themselves to themselves. You never really see them.’
Ms. Jones’ family released a touching tribute to their daughter, who was known as Katie, after the sentencing.
They said: ‘Today, justice has been done for our beloved Katie.

‘Finally, Michael Foran faced up to the gravity of the overwhelming evidence against him, forcing him to plead guilty to Katie’s murder.
‘We as a family know that the guilty plea will never bring Katie back to us or justify the long term suffering he inflicted upon her and subsequently us.
‘We will always miss Katie and will know she will be forever in our hearts. We now as a family hopes to move on now justice has been done and Katie can finally rest in peace.’
Detective Inspector Nick Barnes, from the force’s homicide team, said: ‘Katie was murdered in the most horrific circumstances.
‘The level of violence used by Foran was despicable. Knowing what he’d done, he left Katie in her flat and carried on with his life.
‘When he realized police had discovered Katie’s body, he fled in an effort to evade capture.
