Cornell was later charged in connection with the two incidents. 

Detective constable Matt Fox, investigating officer, said: “Police, in conjunction with the victims, are pleased with the sentence handed to Cornell. 

“In both instances, the families have been left in shock following the invasion into their homes when irreplaceable and sentimental jewellery was stolen.
