Father of murdered Sam ‘elated’ at verdict
The father of murdered Stevenage woman Samantha Wright said he was elated that justice has finally been done, after her killer was convicted at Scotland’s High Court today.
Jeremy Wright, who had sat through the gruesome evidence of the four week murder case, alongside Samantha’s mother, Catherine Gibson, said he was delighted that Robert Chalmers, 59, had been found guilty of his daughter’s death.
“We are delighted at the verdict. We always knew. We are just glad that justice has been done.
“It’s taken a long time. We are elated at the verdict. We were always convinced that it would be the case.
“It helps a little bit with the grief process. People talk a lot about closure, it’s not that yet.”

He added: “He didn’t acknowledge what he’d done – it’s everyone’s fault but his. It would have been nice of him to admit what he’d done.
“His family – he’s put them through the same ordeal as us. He seems incapable of any remorse. His family were all in tears.”
