A heart-wrenching CCTV footage showing the moments, a three-year-old girl was murdered by her own mother has been released after she was convicted in court.
The 23-year-old British sex worker mum, Louise Porton killed both her daughters because they ‘got in the way’ of her job but made it seem like they had died from natural causes.
Porton had reportedly searched for “can you actually die if you have a blocked nose and cover your mouth with tape” on the internet before contacting emergency services.
Footage shows the part-time model taking her daughter, Lexi Draper into their home in Rugby, Warwickshire, hours before she suffocated her on January 15 2018.
The woman strangled her 16-month-old baby, Scarlett Vaughan just 18 days later.
The court heard how Porton had tried to avoid spending time with her daughters and even claimed to have had sex with a man while they slept in another room.
Louise Porton is to spend a minimum of 32 years in prison for the murder of both her 17-months-old Scarlett Vaughan and 3-year-old Lexi Draper, following her conviction after a five-week trial at Birmingham Crown Court.
Jurors heard Porton accepted 41 friend requests on a dating app just a day after Lexi died.
Strangely, prosecutors described her as being “calm and emotionless” following Scarlett’s death.
