A man has been convicted of the murder of his estranged wife after she told him she wanted a divorce.
Kelvin Newton, 45, strangled Assia Newton, 44, with a dog lead at their home in Pencoed, near Bridgend. She was found dead on July 14 last year.
Cardiff Crown Court heard how the mother-of-four fell in love with a waiter on a Mediterranean holiday after years trapped in a violent, unhappy marriage.
At the time of her murder, she was days away from flying out to Tunisia to meet the waiter for a third holiday.
Newton, of Bridgend, denied murder but was found guilty by a jury after a two-week trial. He was remanded in custody and will be sentenced next month.
