Millionaire found guilty of murdering escort girlfriend

Peter Morgan has been found guilty of murdering Georgina Symonds

A multi-millionaire has been found guilty of murdering his escort girlfriend.

The jury reached a unanimous verdict on Wednesday following a three-week trial.

Peter Morgan, of Llanellen, Abergavenny, strangled 25-year-old Georgina Symonds at one of his homes in Llanmartin, in Newport, after hearing of her plans to fleece him, leave him and work for other men.

The 57 year old and father-of-two had paid Miss Symonds up to £10,000 per month and allowed her to live rent-free at the £300,000 property.

Mr Morgan admitted killing the former burlesque dancer but denied her murder on the grounds of diminished responsibility and loss of control.

He will be sentenced later today.
