Sex abuser murdered girl, 2, and her mother
Saturday 20 November 1999
Thomas John Park stabbed Sharon Lester, 22, in the neck more than 80 times - probably because she discovered he had sexually abused her daughter, Jade, Liverpool Crown Court was told. Park then dumped the girl's body on waste ground near her home in the Kensington area of Liverpool, where it lay undiscovered for a week.
Park, 25, was sentenced to life imprisonment for each murder, and a further three years, to run concurrently, for indecent assault. He denied murdering Ms Lester in December last year, but admitted manslaughter.
