A 13-YEAR-OLD girl was battered and strangled to death by her stepfather after he found her with a packet of condoms with one missing, a court was told yesterday.

But although 'sexually developed' she was still a virgin, Professor Stephen Jones, a Home Office pathologist, told Nottingham Crown Court.

The court heard that Leah Huskinson was hit six times over the head with a 12in cold chisel and then trussed up in a sack with a bag over her head. She had also been strangled.

Brent Huskinson, 35, of Kirkby-in-Ashfield, Nottinghamshire, denies murdering his stepdaughter.

The case continues today.
