A prostitute who was stabbed to death died unlawfully, the Sheffield Coroner Chris Dorries has recorded.
Michaela Hague had a young son
Michaela Hague, 25, was found dying at Spital Fields in Sheffield on 5 November 2001.
She had been stabbed nine times in the neck and back.
It was claimed during the inquest hearing that her life could have been saved if she had been treated differently at the Northern General Hospital.
The single mother died a few hours after being admitted but officials insist the correct procedures were followed.
Ms Hague gave a description of her attacker as she lay in the arms of police constable Richard Twigg.
He wrote the description down on his hand and radioed details of the suspect back to base as he cradled the woman.
Her attacker has never been caught.
Ms Hague, who lived with her partner and five-year-old son in the Pitsmoor area of Sheffield, was stabbed after going with a man to a secluded spot near the city centre.
