Banker convicted of wife's killing

A CITY banker who killed his unfaithful wife following a violent row was yesterday found guilty of manslaughter.

Former HSBC banker Neil Ellerbeck, 46, attacked his wife Kate during an argument at their £600,000 home in Enfield last November.

Ellerbeck, who had secretly been bugging his wife’s phone calls, was remanded in custody and will be sentenced on Wednesday.

The court heard that Ellerbeck, chief investment banker at HSBC in Canary Wharf, had turned to alcohol shortly after the recession hit the City.
