Interior designer Jade Janks convicted of murdering stepdad over nude photos

Jade Janks news

Janks found several hundred nude photos of herself on Tom Merriman’s computer, then planned to kill him.

Janks drugged then strangled Merriman on 31 December 2020. The 39 year old interior designer was convicted by a jury after one day of deliberations.

Some of the images were taken when Janks was a teenager, more than 20 years ago.

Janks had described in court the moment she found the images. ‘It was the most violating, awful, gut-wrenching feeling ever. I felt sick, I felt I couldn’t… even touch my own skin. I don’t know if there [are] words, not even in a movie have I seen something so sick.’

Janks faces 25 years to life in prison. Her sentencing will take place in San Diego on 3 April 2023.

    • Re gofunedme comment. I hope this woman gets locked up for life. Whilst I can appreciate she was upset , you can’t go around murdering people like she did. And as for the comment writer, you need to go and check yourself in with the psychiatrist.
