April 2007, Miss Krystal Hart, aged 22,
and two months pregnant, had lived in her housing
association flat for about a year, but soon after moving
in she fell out with her downstairs neighbour Angie
Thomas Hughes, lived
in a nearby dilapidated house with his 81-year-old,
wheelchair-bound mother, and was besotted with Miss
Hughes carried out the killing hours after Miss Hart's
fiancÚ, David Siveter, had noted down his car registration
during a row in the front garden with Miss Brewer, the row
had started after Hughes had parked his car in front of
Miss Hart's house.
After the row, Brewer
called the police to complain and then telephoned Hughes,
who later returned with a gun.
There was current county
court action between the women who had both installed CCTV
to gather evidence against each other.
Hughes was looking
for Mr Siveter and when told he was not home banged at
Miss Hart's door and demanded Miss Hart open it, calling
out: "Come out bitch."
Miss Brewer, who could be heard pleading "No" on CCTV
footage, became hysterical as shots were fired.
Miss Hart, died instantly when she was shot through the
head. A second bullet was fired into her temple after she
collapsed onto the floor.
13th March 2008
Hughes was found guilty of murder and possessing a firearm
with intent on Good Friday last year.
Ordering Hughes to serve at
least 30 years Old Bailey judge Anthony Morris said it was
"a truly evil act".
