You Won't Believe The Evil Orchestrated Length A Man Went To Murder His Girlfriend

A thug who battered his mother-of-two girlfriend with an iron before 'drowning' her in paint and burning her alive has been jailed for life.

Anthony Porter, 33, murdered his partner of 18 months Andraya Lyons, 38, after rowing with her during her work Christmas party at a Marriott Hotel in Swindon, Wiltshire.

He followed her home after texting his sister 'Some of us are angels, some of us are demons, and tonight the demons won.'

After the violent attack, Porter made a hasty attempt to cover up his crime before he handed himself into police.


Bristol Crown Court heard that Porter forced his way into her home and hit over the head with an iron, stamped on her face and poured thick paint down her throat.

He then placed gas canisters between her thighs and doused her with white spirit before setting her on fire while she was still alive.

Firefighters were called after neighbours smelled smoke and discovered Ms Lyons' charred body on the living room floor at around 5.30am on December 10 last year.

They found blood on the iron, porch, kitchen walls, and in the living room, and Porter's footprint in the grey paint he had poured on his girlfriend.

Porter yesterday admitted murdering Ms Lyons, who leaves behind two sons aged five and eight, and was jailed for life with a minimum of 17-and-a-half years.

Judge Peter Blair QC told him he would be subject to the sentence 'for the rest of your life' for the 'dreadful' murder.
