 Man kills his daughter to spite his ex-wife who turned lesbian


A man who stabbed his eight-year-old daughter in the chest in an apparent act of revenge against his ex-partner has been found guilty of murder.



William Billingham, 55, used a kitchen knife to kill Mylee after ignoring her screams as he dragged her into his bungalow near Walsall on 20 January, 2018.


Birmingham Crown Court heard he killed her moments after holding the blade to the neck of her mother, Tracey Taundry.

Billingham was convicted of murder and making a threat to kill Miss Taundry.
The jurors deliberated for about 80 minutes before unanimously convicting Billingham of the two charges.



The unemployed factory worker opted not to give evidence and claimed he had no memory of stabbing Mylee. He said he was guilty of the lesser offence of manslaughter due to depression.

Prosecutors said Billingham had "turned his anger" on Mylee to spite Miss Taundry after she began a relationship with a woman. He will be sentenced on Tuesday. 📷: CATERS NEWS AGENCY
