Posted November 09, 2018 07:08:37 The sister who died at the hands of her boyfriend was the last person to meet her on the night of her death.
She left her family’s home on Friday night after she had been dating another man for two months.
The boyfriend, Thomas Sanders, told police he had been with the woman for two weeks and had slept with her a few times before she died.
“We’ve had a couple of girlfriends, we’ve been having a relationship for a few months now, but she was just a normal person, she didn’t have a problem,” he told police.
Thomas Sanders admitted to having sex with the victim in a park at the time of her murder and he said the victim’s boyfriend had told him he had had sex with her in his car on the way to her funeral.
In sentencing Thomas Sander to life in prison, the judge said he had shown no remorse.
Justice Peter Dutton described Thomas Sanding as “a person who was extremely naive, who was quite willing to have sex with a young woman he didn’t know, who did not care for her”.
“He was quite prepared to do it, quite willing,” he said.
She had suffered for months, but Thomas Sandings behaviour was not like the kind of behaviour we would expect from a human being.
Judge Dutton said Thomas Sandinger had no remorse for the murder of the woman.
He said it was clear Thomas Sandingers life had been in a downward spiral for a number of years.
His sentence will run concurrently to his life sentence for the killing of a woman in 2014.
