The man of mystery with a faked CV.
Lois was just 19 when she met Jenkins in London. She was training as a nurse and he was working as a sculptor and supply teacher. They were introduced by a friend who went to the same church as Lois.
The fact that he didn't share much about his past life with her was curiously attractive - it gave him an "air of mystery", she said. Jenkins was 24, ruggedly handsome and - unlike Lois - confident.
He came from a wealthy background, and was, on the face of it at least, well educated. He told her he had gained a degree in art and English from a university in Kent.
It was only after he was arrested - when almost his entire CV was exposed as a deceitful fiction - that she realised the university didn't actually exist, and that his main qualifications were low-grade O-levels and a teaching certificate from a PE college. Friends told her they didn't think the relationship was a good idea. "I was never quite sure why I ignored their advice."
After a 12-month courtship, however, they married in December 1982.
When he was upset or stressed, Jenkins would become violent. Two years ago at the Appeal Court, Mrs Jenkins gave detailed testimony under oath about his explosive temper and what she described as his terrifying, violent outbursts.

"The early years of our marriage were quite traumatic because Sion would suddenly become aggressive when he was upset," she said.
"He slapped me in the face on a few occasions but he would quickly calm down and behave as though nothing had happened. I got used to his unusual temper and I found ways of adapting to it."
Despite this, it was also an exciting time in her life. "My four daughters were born within the first six years of our marriage and I threw myself into motherhood." Read entire article.
