A man has been jailed for life after murdering his partner in the home that they shared.
Simon Winstone, 50, inflicted "unimaginable cruelty" on Michelle Denise Rosser, known as Denise, who was later found dead at the property in Bedlinog on 29th May, 2018.
Winstone claimed that he found her at the bottom of the stairs and denied murder.
But evidence from a pathologist showed that Denise Rosser’s injuries were consistent with being beaten and Simon Winstone was charged with her murder.
Detectives said the injuries she had suffered were "among the worst" they had ever encountered, including a ruptured kidney, multiple fractured ribs and injuries to her head, chest and stomach.
Winstone was convicted by a jury on Tuesday 4th December, 2018, and was today sentenced to life with a minimum of 18 years.
DCI Stuart Wales, who led the investigation, said: "Denise suffered unimaginable cruelty at the hands of Winstone, who would assault her behind closed doors and even in public".
