The former assistant to the Duchess of York was imprisoned for life 19 years ago for murdering her millionaire friend.

Tom Cressman was stabbed in the chest when he slept in his apartment in Fulham, West London after refusing to marry her. Andrews, 52, who was Sarah Ferguson's dresser for nine years, was initially released from prison in 2015.

She was imprisoned again in July 2018, reportedly accused of harassing an ex-lover. It was not thought that it was related to Mr. Cressman's family.

Now the Parole Board has given her freedom again. She has returned to Cleethorpes, in north-east Lincolnshire, where a number of family members live.

When Andrews was sent back to custody in 2018, Mr. Cressman's 66-year-old hotel brother, Rick, said: “I'm not happy to say I told you. It was inevitable that she would be recalled because she was clearly not ready to be let.

& # 39; At the conditional hearing that saw her released, the joint letter from our family warning of the dangers of her release was clearly ignored.

& # 39; This is just a further unwanted reminder of what Andrews did to Tom and how she left us all robbed and totally destroyed. & # 39;

He warned earlier: & # 39; Every man who enters into a relationship with her is at serious risk because she clearly cannot stand rejection. & # 39;

In 2009, Andrews escaped from an open prison in Kent to meet her parents in a cemetery in the middle of the night.

She received thousands of tax money to try and defeat her murder case during the Old Bailey trial in 2001.

Her lawyers received £ 65,403.44 in legal aid, while her lawyers received another £ 27,503.56 in legal aid, it was reported.

Jury members rejected her claims that she woke up when Mr. Cressman saw her beating and that she hit him out of self-defense with a cricket bat and & # 39; he must have gone to the knife in the dark & ​​# 39 ;.

In reality, as a rejected lover, she had started to take revenge to rival that of Glenn Close & # 39; s obsessed character in Fatal Attraction.

After attacking Mr Cressman, she let her lover die in his bed while she fled and made contact with friends on her cell phone to pretend that she knew nothing of his fate.

Since her release, Andrews has reportedly worked as an antique dealer at her Cleethorpes house. Her stock contained royal objects.

Jane Andrews, pictured left in 2015 after her first release from prison for the murder of her lover Tom Cressman in 2000, worked for nine years as the Duchess of York's loft until she was fired in 1997

A source told The Sun last July: & She said she sold the royal items because they had bad memories of her. She said they were hers and a rich ex-husband.

& # 39; She said she lived in London but didn't visit anymore. & # 39;

In the run-up to her release from the New Hall prison in Wakefield, West Yorkshire, the murderess bought a four-bedroom cottage in 2015 for over £ 200,000.

The cash purchase was made possible by the considerable profit she made in prison on the sale of her old flat in an exclusive block overlooking Battersea Park, South London. She bought it for £ 100,000 in 1996 and sold it for £ 450,000 in 2011, it was reported at the time.

Although technically Sarah's dresser, Andrew's main task was to shop for the Duchess.

She made the news in 1995 after £ 250,000 worth of jewelery had been stolen from one of the duchess's suitcases, which Andrews had checked in an aircraft in New York.

The jewelry, a diamond necklace and bracelet that the duchess had received from the queen as a wedding gift had been stolen by a baggage handler. It was later recovered and returned to the Duchess.

Andrews was released from the royal family in 1997.

It was also claimed that royal aides believed that Andrews fleeced the £ 10,000 duchess in the nine years she traveled with her.

The claim that she had helped herself considerably through Sarah & # 39; s private accounts only came to light after she left the royal service in the late 1990s.

Two years after her royal function, Andrews was introduced through friends to Christopher Dunn-Butler, an IBM computer manager who was divorced and 20 years older. They married in 1990 in her native Grimsby.

But the union lasted only six years because Andrews' love life turned out to be just as colorful as her career. She is said to have carried out a number of things, including a bodyguard to the royal family.

The way Andrews defended herself during her trial, in which she accused Mr. Cressman of raping her for hours before killing him, has appalled his family and the investigators who investigated his death.

Former police officer Jim Dickie, who led the murder investigation, said: & She killed him in life and killed him again by trying to ruin his reputation. & # 39;

Mr. Cressman, 39, had a successful company with covers for classic cars and was a business partner of former racing driver Sir Stirling Moss.
