Boston man jailed for manslaughter and rape of woman who sought relationship in Lithuanian magazine
A man has been jailed for 16 years for the manslaughter of a woman he violently raped in a Wisbech hotel.
Dainotas Doblys, 48, of no fixed abode, although he had been living in Boston, was sentenced on September 2 at Cambridge Crown Court.
He had met the victim, Virginija Jurkiene, 49, of Oakroyd Crescent, Wisbech, after she placed an advert in a Lithuanian magazine 'seeking a friend for a serious relationship'.
He was found guilty of manslaughter and two counts of rape following a 14-day trial at Cambridge Crown Court in June. He was cleared of murder.

The pair arranged to meet on Friday, January 18, and spent the evening drinking before they tried to check into a hotel.
They booked into the Hare and Hounds Hotel in North Brink, then left to buy alcohol and food from a local shop before returning.
At around 11.45am the following morning, Doblys told reception staff that Ms Jurkiene was dead in the room. Police and ambulance were called and Doblys was arrested.
A post mortem revealed she had died from suffocation in conjunction with severe alcohol intoxication.
Doblys told officers the first time he met Virginija was after she had placed the advert in the magazine, they had difficulty finding a hotel room, but when they did they had consensual sex.
He was jailed for 16 years with a four year extension on release.
Detective Inspector Richard Wall of Cambridgeshire Police said: "This was a particularly nasty case where the victim was subjected to an horrific sexual assault which may have taken place when she was semi-conscious or unconscious.
"I hope this result will provide Virginija's family with some comfort that justice has been done and my thoughts remain with them at this time.
"While cases like this are extremely rare in Cambridgeshire, one case is one too many."
