Cops hunt female killer, 28, who bathed in her victim’s blood after frenzied screwdriver attack

COPS are hunting a brutal female killer who bathed in her victim’s blood after a frenzied screwdriver attack.

Karen Duncan, 28, was caged for seven years for her role in the 2007 murder of Scott Burgess.

Now police are back on her tail after she dodged court over a rammy she had with a woman in the same town where her victim lived.

Duncan was only 17 when she stabbed Burgess, 24, twice with a screwdriver in an attack that saw him killed after being stabbed around 80 times.

Stephen Price – who pled guilty to murder – posed next to his victim’s body while Karen’s evil sister Irene, 29, took snaps.

Irene also photographed Price and Karen on a mobile phone as they splashed around in blood red water in a bath after the killing.

Karen pled guilty to culpable homicide and was jailed.

Once back on the streets, she went on to have a quarrel with a woman at a property in the town’s Bank Street.

On October 3 last year Karen behaved in a threatening or abusive way towards Stacey Murdoch by shouting, swearing, threatening violence and placing Miss Murdoch in a state of fear or alarm.

Duncan previously pled guilty to a charge of breaking Section 38(1) of the Criminal Justice and Licensing (Scotland) Act 2010 and was due to return to the dock on Friday to learn her fate.

But when she did not appear for sentencing, Sheriff Frances McCartney granted a warrant for her arrest for failing to appear at court.

She could be jailed over the offence when she is caught and brought back to court for sentencing.

She was originally sentences to just over seven years behind bars and told she would be supervised for three years once released from custody over Mr Burgess’ killing.

Sis Irene, who was 18 at the time, was caged for 27 months after admitting attempting to defeat the ends of justice, by trying to conceal evidence, while Price, who was then 20, pled guilty to murder and was jailed for 15 years.

Irene was released after serving the sentence and went on to clock up a number of offences, including a knife attack and police assault.

And earlier this month it emerged she would spend Christmas behind bars and have to give birth while a prison after she was jailed for a Paisley knife rampage.

She was spotted “holding two large kitchen knives at around waist height” and running along Bank Street with the weapons.

Police officers called to investigate later found the knives and a screwdriver, the same type of weapons used to kill Mr Burgess, on the ground near to where she was.

Sheriff David Pender jailed Irene for 22 months and placed her on a nine-month-long Supervised Release Order, which will see her supervised in the community for nine months for that offence.
