The pair had bumped into each other in a nightclub before taking a taxi back together to her address: At some point during the night, Trevor raped Megan and applied pressure to her neck, where he then stabbed her in the back nine times: Megan’s body was discovered later that day by a neighbour who found her keys covered in blood nearby, the court heard: Trevor was sentenced to 21 years and 65 days: He was also sentenced to eight years for two counts of rape to run concurrently.
Sentencing, Judge Michael Chambers QC, said: “This remains a brutal and sustained attack committed in a most callous way in her own home: “Megan Newton had her whole life before her. She had all the hopes and dreams of an 18-year-old.”
Senior Investigating Officer, Detective Inspector Cheryl Hannan, said: Megan had ‘kindly offered him a place to stay overnight’ because he had taken drugs, had been stopped by police and ‘was worried about returning home.’……………..She added: “In return he attacked and killed her and left her lying in her own bed while he let himself out and told no-one what he had done…………….”Megan was a young and gifted teenager who through hard work and dedication had achieved so much with opportunities to achieve so much more……….”Trevor’s actions have taken this away from Megan and the chance for her family to see her continue to thrive as a woman who they were rightly so proud of.”
Megan’s family said: “The loss of Meg is unbearable. We’re heartbroken and will always remain so. That will never leave us: “Meg’s life enriched the lives of so many and because of that, she’ll never be forgotten and she’ll be loved forever: “Our beautiful Megan didn’t deserve any of this. But she does deserve to now rest in peace.”
