June 2014, Andrew Saunders was in a relationship with 21-year-old Zoe Morgan, but when she broke off the relationship, he started to plan his revenge.

 

July 2016, Zoe breaks up with Saunders and starts a relationship with fellow Matalan worker, 33-year-old Lee Simmons.

 

27th September 2016, Saunders buys two kitchen knives, and some latex gloves, then goes home and used Google to search for, "the easiest way to kill a person" and "how long do murderers serve in prison" .

 

28th September 2016, Having planned the murder,

Saunders approached the pair at 05:50am in Queen Street, Cardiff, close to the Matalan store as they were on their way to work at the nearby Matalan Store. He first attacked Mr Simmons in a frenzied attack, as Zoe he tried to help he was heard to shout "I'm coming for you next". She tried to run off but he chased her down the street eventually catching her and stabbing her several times.

 

After the attacks He then sent a text message to his father: "Thanks for being a pathetic, useless father. Just killed two people. Cheers."
