A woman found guilty in England of killing her two young
daughters because they "got in the way" of her sex life has been
jailed for life, the BBC reports.
Remorseless Louise Porton, 23, learned her punishment from a
Birmingham Crown Court judge who called her evil and
calculated, the BBC reported. She will be eligible for parole
after 32 years.
These were blameless young children who were plainly vulnerable
and ought to have been able to rely on their mother to protect
and nurture them," Judge Amanda Yip told Porton, according to
the BBC. "Instead you took their young lives away."
Porton killed the two children, three-year-old Lexi Draper and
17-month-old Scarlett Vaughn last year within a three week
period. Police said they were suffocated.
A man agreed to pay her for sex a week before Lexi was killed
and when the girl was in the hospital, according to the BBC.
Porton had met the man through a website.
At the start of the trial the prosecutor said it was not hard to
draw the conclusion that for Porton at times, her two children
got in the way of her doing what she wanted when she wanted and
with whom she wanted.
The jury convicted her Thursday.
"We welcome the sentence handed to Porton. These were
premeditated murders for which she has shown no remorse and the
length of the sentence reflects this, Warwickshire Police
Detective Superintendent Pete Hill said.
