Father kills daughter out of rage after finding out that his wife turned lesbian

A father who was driven by jealousy and anger has killed his eight-year-old daughter Mylee in order to cause pain and revenge to her mother after finding out that she had a new girlfriend.

William Billingham has been sentenced to life and will serve a minimum term of 27 years at the Birmingham Crown Court for stabbing Mylee Billingham to death.

According to Judge Paul Farrer QC:

“Alternately, this was the brutal, cowardly, killing of a defenceless and much-loved child who had her whole life ahead of her”.

Jurors deliberated for around 80 minutes on Monday before unanimously convicting Billingham of murder and a separate charge of making a threat to kill 34-year-old Miss Taundry while holding a knife to her neck on the night of the murder.
