Chilling CCTV footage showing the tragic final moments of a three-year-old girl murdered by her own mother has been released after she was convicted of killing both her children.
Footage shows part-time model Louise Porton, 23, leading her daughter Lexi Draper into their home in Rugby, Warwickshire, hours before she suffocated her on January 15 last year.
Just 18 days later, she strangled 16-month-old Scarlett Vaughan. She killed both her daughters because they ‘got in the way’ of her job as a sex worker.
Clips from two weeks after Lexi had died show the single mother carrying Scarlett from a hotel in Rugby where she had been staying – with police suggesting she was already dead as she casually carried her through the lobby.
A clip from a petrol station the same day shows Porton stopping to fill her car up with fuel even as her Scarlett lay dead, or dying, on the back seat.
Porton, who earned a living sleeping with men she met online and sending them explicit pictures and videos, was today found guilty of two counts of murder.
