Judge Timothy Mousley said: “You murdered Kayleigh in a sustained and very violent attack while she was lying in the bed you shared with her.
“Your meanness to her became apparent long before you killed her.”
“ In October 2018, she lost her cell phone, thinking she left it in the back of a taxi. Within a few days, you had been using the phone to send s*xual pictures of her.
“It was an indication of your deep feelings of jealousy and how you reacted to them.
“ In November 2018, you created a fake Facebook account and uploaded intimate and s*xual photos of Kayleigh.
“ It took you over 12 months to kill her, but this action shows all the qualities of your will to control her, to force her.
“You wanted Kayleigh as possession.
“Your outwardly enjoyable behavior that people talk about hides a tendency on your part during prolonged periods of extreme jealousy.
“You never wanted to control her. She was far too independent of mind to be someone who loved life.
It was a brutal attack on her … With great courage she tried to defend herself … but her attack was so violent that she passed out, immobilized and helpless. She didn’t stand a chance and it was clear that you intended to kill her.
“It was deliberate and planned. The crowbar theft occurred two months before the murder.
“You are deceiving, you have tried to involve others and ascribe racist comments to them … you are manipulative.
“You showed no emotion, much less remorse.
