A BOYFRIEND told 999 operators “there’s blood everywhere” after stabbing his girlfriend to death, a court heard.
Kevin Mannion, 45, allegedly knifed Elinor O’Brien, 22, in a “rageful and violent attack” at his home in Manchester.

In the call played to jurors, Mannion added: “There’s blood everywhere. She’s been punctured in the groin. Please come.
“You need to help. She’s dying, she’s dying. Please, please, please come.
“I’m begging you to hurry up.
“She’s been cut with a sharp object. She was picking her stuff up, I was throwing her stuff telling her to get out and something punctured her in the groin.
“I’m begging you to get someone here.”
The court was told emergency services arrived at Great Northern Tower at around 12:30pm on August 16.
PC Luke Needham said Mannion was lying over Elinor by a pool of blood on the floor in his flat.
The officer told jurors it was “clear” he was attempting to stem the flow of blood.
Mannion then told officers: “Thank God you are here”.
PC Needham said the alleged killer was “sweating a lot” and “breathing heavily”.
The court heard Mannion made a phonecall to a number saved as “Greg – solicitor”, saying “something is going on”.
Mannion also said “I know the police are going to want to speak to me. I just need you there”, it is alleged.
Elinor was rushed to hospital where she died three days later following a “catastrophic” brain injury.
The court was told a neighbour had heard “arguing” coming from the flat before the horror unfolded.
He described the shouting as “higher pitched” and said there was “screaming”, jurors heard.
Mannion denies murder, wounding with intent and coercive or controlling behaviour.
The trial continues.
