Killer royal dresser who murdered lover flogs victim’s valuable on Facebook

A killer Royal dresser set to become TV’s new Des has been accused of flogging off her victim’s valuables on Facebook.

Jane Andrews was branded 'sick’ by the brother of tycoon Tom Cressman after he recognised Tintin memorabilia for sale on a website operated by his murderer under her new identity.

She was jailed for life after battering and stabbing Tom when he refused to marry her in 2000.

Andrews – who was an aide to Sarah Duchess Of York for nine years – was freed in 2015 but recalled to serve another 13 months for harassing a new lover.

The TV production company behind Netflix smash The Crown plans to dramatise her crimes for a new generation of viewers just as current ITV programme Des has reignited interest in serial killer Dennis Nilsen.

Andrews, 53, is now out again and has been running an online business selling designer belts, figurines, vintage bags and jewellery from her home overlooking the sea.

But Tom’s brother said he is certain some of the goods she is selling were Tom’s and he want her back behind bars.

She has been previously exposed for flogging off Royal keepsakes after setting herself up as an antiques dealer.

Tom’s brother Richard is convinced a distinctive Tintin lilo belonged to his beloved sibling.

He also said he is certain a TinTin silk scarf she lists as a 'collector’s item’ was his brother’s.

Classic car enthusiast Tom – a business partner of late motor racing legend Stirling Moss – had a passion for Belgian cartoonist Georges Remi’s comic book creation.

Andrews is also flogging a TinTin silk scarf she lists as a 'collector’s item’.

"My brother was very fond of everything Tintin,’’ hotelier Richard told the Daily Star.

"I saw pictures of the items on the site. There is a pool lilo. That is definitely the lilo acquired as a present from Tom.

"Anything to do with Tintin belonged to Tom or he will have given her.

"If they are gifts from him it is still in very bad taste.

“She should have given them away not be selling them if she didn’t want them. I am shocked.

"Tom loved everything Tintin and started reading the Tintin books when he was very young in the South of France.

“They were presents for him and a way of helping him learn French.

"It’s a bit sick if she is now selling items that were his.’’

Richard, 68, said the murder of his brother left the family `utterly devastated’ and Andrews should not have been freed.

He said the Parole Board over-ruled the prison service to free her from her life sentence.

Richard then got a call `out of the blue’ from her new married lover saying she had threatened him too.

Police were alerted and Andrews was recalled to jail for breaching her parole conditions.

Richard said: "How she was released for a second time I just don’t know after being threatening to another man.

"We have very substantial misgivings about the way the Parole Board operates.

"When Jane was released for the first time the prison service told me and my sister that they had recommended against it but she was still freed.

"The Ministry Of Justice team said they didn’t feel she was ready for release but she was allowed out on parole.

"Then she was recalled back inside for threatening another man.

"He was married with a family but decided to finish the relationship. "Now she’s been let back out.

"It beggars belief.

"I have problems with this and grave concerns for any new partner she may get involved with.

"I didn’t want her released and did my best to ensure she was locked up for a long time. I went to a Parole Board hearing and read out family letters.

"It’s always been difficult and we’ve been utterly devastated.

"A life sentence in current law isn’t really a life sentence.

"I’m still serving my life sentence after 20 years so are all my family.’’

Andrews hit Tom, 39, with a cricket bat then stabbed him to death at his flat in Fulham, west London.

She went on the run and was caught four days later after the Duchess Of York left her two voicemail messages pleading with her to hand herself in.

In 2009 she escaped from East Sutton Park open prison in Maidstone, Kent, and met her parents in a graveyard during the night but was captured after trying to flee in a taxi.

The TV dramatisation could spell more anguish for the Duchess whose ex-husband Prince Andrew quit public duties in the wake of the Jeffrey Epstein sex scandal.

A spokesman for Left Bank Pictures, which made The Crown, said the drama about the Royal dresser was in 'very early development’.

Andrews declined to comment at her home on the east coast of England.

A Ministry Of Justice spokesman declined to comment.

A source said: "She is monitored by the probation service in the community.

“It is extremely likely she will be spoken to about this.

"If it can be proved an offender is cocking a snook at victims or their relatives there is a chance they could be recalled to prison.’’
