Louise Porton a Birmingham sex worker mother sentenced to life after murdering her young daughters cause they got in the way of her sex life.
A UK woman has been sentenced to life in prison for killing her two young daughters, who ‘got in the way’ of her sex life, a court heard this week.
Louise Porton, who was a sex worker, was found guilty Thursday in Birmingham court for the murders of 3-year-old Lexi Draper and 17-month-old Scarlett Vaughan, The Sun reported.
The 23-year-old mom was ordered to serve 32 years to life in prison for the murders, which were within three weeks of each other.
Prosecutors said the mom suffocated Lexi on Jan. 14, 2018, at her home before strangling the younger sister 18 days later.
‘At times, her two children got in the way of her doing what she wanted, when she wanted and with whom she wanted,’ Prosecutor Oliver Saxby told the court.
The day after Lexi’s death Porton accepted 41 friend requests on a dating app.
“How long does it take a dead body to go cold up to the shoulder?”
Also incriminating Porter were searches she’s made on her phone prior to her daughter’s strangling deaths, including, ‘For how long after drowning can someone be resuscitated?”, “How long does it take a dead body to go cold up to the shoulder?” and “five weird things that happen after you die’.
Porton’s mother at one point testified her daughter, ‘hated looking after her two children because they interfered with her escort and modeling work’.
In a statement read by prosecutors, the girls’ father, Chris Draper, accused Porton of treating the toddlers as an ‘inconvenience.’
‘I sit and think, day and night, and I can’t understand why my two little girls were taken away because Louise wanted to sleep around,’ the father said.
Did social services fail two young children?
Speaking after the trial Porton’s mother, Sharon said she would never forgive her daughter, who she described as becoming a ‘monster’ when ‘something snapped in her head’.
Sharon also claimed that social services could have done more.
Told the sentencing judge in part, ‘The murder of any child by a mother involves the process of abuse of trust. They ought to have relied on their mother to look after them.
‘It is not a case of a young mother doing something in the heat of the moment. The evidence shows calculated decisions. In between the deaths you carried on as normal.’
Of note, Porton continued denied any wrongdoing in her daughter’s deaths, saying, ‘I still don’t know how my daughters died, or what caused it.’
