Nisha Patel-Nasri screamed 'help, help, he's following me' as she was stabbed to death on her driveway, jurors heard.
The 29-year-old special constable left a trail of bloody footprints as she collapsed with a knife wound to her groin outside her home on Sudbury Avenue, Wembley.
Her cheating husband Fadi Nasri, 34, plotted her murder so he could cash in on her life insurance policy because the couple were £102,000 in debt, it is claimed.
At least one 'hooded man' carried out the murder, plunging a kitchen knife into the young woman's thigh, severing a vital artery.
Prosecutor Michael Worsley QC said: "Neighbours in Sudbury Avenue were alerted by very loud screaming coming from outside in the street.
"Some immediately looked outside and they saw the now dead lady outside.
"She was screaming 'help help' and she was heard also to scream 'he's following me, he's following me'
Mr Worsley added: "Nobody sees the actual stabbing. It was only when the screaming starts that they look.
"One neighbour saw a male person running away from Nisha. So she was screaming, she was calling for help, she was saying he was following her and we find her footprints in her own blood."
Other witnesses described a black male, wearing a dark hooded top walking in nearby Charterhouse Avenue.
"They described him as 5 foot 10 inches, a round face, round eyes, clean shave in his 20s," Mr Worsely said.
He was later seen jogging away.
The prosecution claim the killer was Jason Jones, 36, who had allegedly been dropped nearby by Tony Emmanuel, 42.
The pair are charged with the killing alongside Nasri and Rodger Leslie, 38, who allegedly set up the hit.
All four men deny murder.
The trial continues.
