A 20-year-old woman was tortured, bound and stabbed to death by a man and his transgender lover for a suspected ‘perverted pleasure’, a court heard.
Bethany Hill was found drenched in blood with stab wounds to her neck and hands bound with tape in the bathroom of a flat on February 3 last year.
Her two flatmates Kayleigh Louise Woods, 23, and Jack Williams, 21, were later arrested and charged with her murder.
Warwick Crown Court was told today the ‘sadistic’ killing may have been done by Williams for ‘perverted pleasure’ and that Woods ‘joined in with her lover to please him.’
Sentencing the pair, Judge Richard Griffith-Jones said: “Kayleigh Woods and Jack Williams you have both been found guilty of murdering a young woman, Bethany Hill, who was vulnerable and needed help.
“The circumstances of the killing demonstrates a complicated, emotional chemistry.
“There is the possibility that the motivation for this killing may have had a sexual aspect.
“The evidence that supports that is the doll, the duct tape and the complicated relationship between the defendants and the deceased.
“I’m unable to say which of the defendants was a controlling force, if there was a controlling force.
“The evidence compels me to this being a sadistic killing.”
This never happens, right?
