Teenage murderer who stabbed 18-year-old mother to death behind bars six months after she was released
A teenage murderer who stabbed a new mother to death in a cocaine attack when she was only 15 has been returned to prison less than six months after she was released.
Jordan Jobson stabbed 18-year-old Samantha Madgin to death in Wallsend in August 2007 and was sentenced to life.
She was then released on license in December. However, Jobson is now back behind bars after violating one of the license terms.
It is not clear what condition she violated, but she will remain incarcerated until her case is reviewed by the parole board.
Today, Ms. Madgin’s mother, Alison, talked about the rollercoaster of emotions she lives with as she wonders when her daughter’s killer will be on the street again.

The 55-year-old said: ‘We shouldn’t find out what she did, but I just hope no one was hurt.
We just wonder what she did. It never ends for us. ‘
Mrs. Madgin was enjoying her first night out since giving birth to son Callum, when she fatally crossed paths with Jobson, whom she had never met before.

The killer, who had drunk vodka and swallowed cocaine, armed himself with a knife after unrest broke out in an alley, Newcastle Crown Court was told.
Jobson stabbed the unarmed Mrs. Madgin several times in the face, arms and chest.
One of the blows pierced her lung and cut a large artery near her heart, meaning nothing could be done to save Samantha’s life.
The murder left Samantha’s son Callum, who was only 10 weeks old at the time, without a mother.
Jobson, from Walker in Newcastle, was later convicted of murder and sentenced to life. It was originally given a minimum term of 15 years.
However, after two separate professions, that was reduced to 11 years.
Jobson was eligible for parole in 2018 and was transferred to an open prison in preparation for her release.
But she was returned to a higher security prison just three months before her minimum term expired following an incident at HMP Askham Grange, an open prison in Yorkshire.
Obviously she had threatened another prisoner.

In April 2019, just weeks before she was due to appear for parole, she suppressed her chance of release again after failing to meet the conditions when she was allowed to be released on day.
Mrs. Madgin’s family has since struggled tirelessly to prevent her release.
But Alison was told last November that her appeal against the council’s decision to release Jobson had failed and that the killer would be released on license.
“I’ve always tried to get through life by not focusing on her, but focusing on the good things,” said Alison.

“But when she was released, it just brought everything back.”
And Alison believes that Jobson’s latest behavior shows that she is not ready to hit the streets again.
“She hasn’t learned anything,” she said. ‘Will this be the pattern now? Is it now institutionalized? She is no longer a child, she is an adult. ‘
In 2019, the lovers of Mrs. Madgin founded Samantha’s Legacy in memory of her.
The organization provides help and support to other families suffering from knife crime.
Carly, Alison and Samantha’s sister, visits schools and youth groups to share their story in an effort to end the stinging epidemic in Britain.
