Magson, 26, failed to divulge to call handlers the true extent of her boyfriend’s injuries
‘I don’t know if something is up with him or if he’s playing me about. It looks like he is sleeping, but its not like he usually sleeps.’
After being told the ambulance might be delayed on a busy Bank Holiday weekend she replies: ‘No, that’s fine, don’t worry about it. I just think he’s too smashed, that’s what I think.’
She failed to mention to operators he had suffered a stab wound, but later divulged to witnesses she had caused his injuries and was arrested by officers.
Detective Inspector Kenny Henry, from the East Midlands Special Operations Unit, said: ‘It has been very disappointing to have to be back in court four years on to see the case be heard before a jury once more.
‘The evidence against Magson continued to be overwhelming and the fact she has been convicted a second time just confirms that.
‘Understandably James’ family found it incredibly difficult to sit through the first trial and hear her lies and deceit and how Magson effectively sat back and watched James die.
‘It has been horrendous for this to be spoken about in court again.
‘They have done their best to come to terms with his death, but to hear yet again that Magson insisted that James had just collapsed because he was under the influence of drugs and alcohol has been distressing for them.
‘They have been reminded with the fact that it was only some time later that she called an ambulance, and even then, she failed to disclose to the call taker that he had sustained a stab wound, [which] she later admitting causing.
‘They continue to struggle with the possibility had Magson called an ambulance sooner and told of them of his injury, he could have lived and they wouldn’t be mourning for James, a much-loved son and brother.
‘Knife crime can have a devastating effect on families, which is why it continues to remain an ongoing priority for the force.’
Magson, of of Newfoundpool, Leicester, will be sentenced again on March 29.
