A man's been jailed for at least 27 years for beating his former fiancee to death, causing the death of their unborn baby.
Tony McLernon, 24 of Harlow in Essex, murdered pregnant Eystna Blunne in July last year, just days before she was due to give birth to a baby girl.
Ordering a minimum tariff of 27 years of a life sentence, Mr Justice Fulford said: "It is undoubtedly the case that he brutally and repeatedly attacked Eystna Blunnie during the course of their relationship.
"He told friends he wanted her significantly harmed or killed. In April he strangled her, causing the baby distress.
"This killing was not the result of an unthinking moment of anger but instead he had contemplated the attack over a long period of time.
"The killing was truly terrible. The horrific screams heard by those nearby show the suffering and pain she suffered and for some period of time she would have been aware of the fatal consequences for herself and her child.
"He has shown not the slightest shred of remorse."
