Teen knife killer who stabbed mother, 18, to death in cocaine-fuelled attack is back behind bars for ‘breaching licence conditions’ six months after she was freed

  • Jobson was released on licence in December but is now back behind bars  
  • She was sent back to jail for breaching one of the licence conditions  

A teenage killer who stabbed a new mother to death in a cocaine-fuelled attack when he was just 15 has been sent back to prison less than six months after she was freed. 

Jordan Jobson stabbed Samantha Madgin, 18, to death in Wallsend in August 2007 and was jailed for life. 

She was then released on licence in December. However, Jobson is now back behind bars after breaching one of the licence’s conditions.   

It is not clear which condition she breached but she will remain locked up until her case is reviewed by the parole board.

Today Ms Madgin’s mother, Alison, has told of the rollercoaster of emotions she is living with as she wonders when her daughter’s killer will be back on the streets.

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.’

Ms Madgin 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 Ms Madgin multiple times 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 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.

Ms Madgin’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 licence.

‘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.’

In 2019 Ms Madgin’s loved ones set up Samantha’s Legacy in her memory.

The organisation provides help and support to other families suffering as a result of knife crime.

Alison and Samantha’s sister, Carly, visit schools and young people’s groups to share their story in a bid to end Britain’s stabbing epidemic.
