The family of a 20-year-old woman who was killed in a Rosemount flat last year have remembered her as a “loving daughter, sister and friend to many” who was in “the prime of her life”
32-year-old Mark Bruce pleaded guilty to the culpable homicide of Chloe Miazek at the High Court in Aberdeen today.
The court heard how the two had met after separate nights out, before going back to his flat – where Ms Miazek was killed.
He was remanded in custody and will be sentenced next month.
Chloe’s family said: “We remain absolutely devastated following the death of our beautiful daughter and sister, Chloe.
“She was in the prime of her life and had so much to look forward to and it is difficult for us to comprehend that she is not here with us today.
“Chloe was a loving daughter to Bob and Theresa, sister to Nathan and friend to many, including at her work at Tesco in Inverurie.
“She will be sorely missed and we ask for privacy as we try to come to terms with her untimely death.”
Detective Inspector Gary Winter, of the Major Investigation Team, said: “As a result of Bruce’s actions Chloe’s family have faced a living nightmare no family should ever have to suffer. Chloe was a bright young woman with her whole life ahead of her – a life that was cruelly cut short that night.
“It is difficult to find words to bring any comfort to such a tragic, needless situation however I can only hope that today’s outcome and admission of guilt can help in some small way.
“My thoughts are with Chloe’s family today.”
