CCTV footage has captured a cold-hearted killer befriending an "incredible mum" just hours before brutally stabbing her to death in her own home.
Birute Klicneliene, 51, stabbed Dace Kalkerte, 50, 16 times in her first-floor flat in King's Lynn, Norfolk, on April 15, 2022, and chilling security footage has captured the mum-of-one's final moments.
CCTV footage shows the pair walking along a park path with Dace carrying what appears to be grocery bags in hand, chatting amicably only hours before Klicneliene's crazed attack.

"The statement makes clear that Dace was an incredible mother. They have lost her in the most horrific and cruel way."
