Jealous alcoholic Carl Mills, 28, bombarded his partner with threatening texts and, convinced she was inside with another man, warned: "I will burn your house down."

Mills stood unemotional and apparently uninterested as the jury at Newport Crown Court delivered three unanimous guilty verdicts.

He then sat and listened to a family victim impact statement read out to the court by prosecutor Gregory Bull QC.

A man has been jailed for 30 years for murdering three generations of a family in a fire.

Carl Mills, 28, will serve a minimum of 30 years after burning a family to death, including grandmother Kim Buckley, 46, her daughter Kayleigh, 17, and 6-month-old Kimberley.

The blaze ripped through the family home in Coed Eva, Cwmbran, south Wales, in the early hours of September 18, last year.
