Jailed for life for murder of her girlfriend

Killer must serve a minimum of 18 years and 358 days behind barsIn it Reid can be heard telling the operator Vaux had collapsed and was making "gurgling noises", was "breathing slowly" and was "turning blue".

A woman who beat and abused her lesbian lover over several years before murdering her in May last year was sentenced at Manchester crown court today to life in prison.

During the trial, the court heard how in 2014 Lyndsey lived with Becky Reid on Sydney Street in Platt Bridge.

"Ultimately, the main aggressor was her partner, who she had all the trust in the world with", he said.

Reid, 32, was also found guilty of causing grievous bodily harm with intent to her former partner, Samantha Newns, following a six-week trial.

A post-mortem examination revealed she had suffered 90 separate injuries following years of abuse by Reid.

She was given a 12-month jail sentence suspended for 12 months. If she did not bring back enough money she would be beaten.

Judge Mansell told her although she had been cleared of murder she bore a "significant degree of moral blame" for Miss Vaux's death.

In the run up to her death Lyndsey had confided in a friend saying: 'I'll be honest with you.

In the final months before her death Miss Vaux appeared downtrodden, malnourished, constantly bruised and going downhill rapidly.

Miss Vaux died in Wigan on May 22 last year, half-starved and severely injured following years of beatings by Reid, after falling under her control and losing contact with her daughter five years ago.

She told another: 'I do get on her nerves and she just snaps'.

Experts concluded that she had died not from one single fatal injury, but from the combined effects of multiple injuries.

'She would also often be seen walking around the streets in the local area without shoes or appropriate clothing, sometimes in flip flops and T-shirt in pouring rain.

She was taken away by the actions of another person.

Becky continued to attack her and stamped on her face and body, whilst Lyndsey lay in the road.

On another occasion, Lyndsey was stood in front of her house and Becky Reid was stood in the doorway.

She attacked Lyndsey, punching and kicking her as she lay on the pavement, before dragging her into the house.

Senior Investigating Officer Bob Tonge of GMP's Major Incident Support Unit said "Lyndsey Vaux was subjected to years of horrific domestic abuse at the hands of her girlfriend, and no decision made here today can bring her back".

He also said some neighbours "knew about this abuse and did nothing", adding: "We all have a responsibility to stand up to this kind of crime".

'We're working extremely hard to tackle domestic abuse in the LGBT community, having introduced a specific recording method to track it and taking our front line officers through training on how best to support victims, but we do need the public's help to continue to tackle domestic abuse in all of our communities.
