A 23-year-old mother who killed her daughter said to her own mother that her youngest child ‘will be next.
Louise Porton from Rugby, Warwickshire killed 3-year-old Lexi Draper. After almost three weeks, she strangled Scarlett Vaughan as the children had ‘got in the way’ of her life as a prostitute.
Porton was sentenced to jail for life with a minimum term of 32 years.
Sharon, her mother, has branded Porton a ‘monster’ and revealed how she planned to kill her youngest child.
“After Lexi died Louise said Scarlett will be next. It was threatening. She was already planning what she would do.”
Devastated Sharon has condemned Porton, who was heard ‘laughing’ during her daughter’s funeral. The grandmother said she would never forgive her evil daughter.
“Something snapped in her head. She became a monster, my wonderful little girl changed,” Sharon expressed. “She’s not the happy loving girl I brought up. I no longer consider her my daughter.”
Sharon also attacked social services who failed to take up warnings from numerous people. Messages shared by the Mirror reveal that at 9:23 pm, Sharon wrote: “Any chance of putting 30 in my bank now for fuel to get my daughter scarlett to the hospital I will transfer it bak wednesday x.”
The man called Patrick replied and told her to ‘call the ambulance don’t waste any time hun xx.”
Porton even tried to sell her daughters’ clothes months after she murdered them. She wrote on Facebook that the bin bags contained clothes for girls aged 0-3 months, 3-6 months, 6-9 months and 9-12 months.
Judge Mrs. Justice Yip told Porton: “One way or another you squeezed the life out of your daughters. Why you did so only you know.
“Your actions have devastated so many lives. Lexi and Scarlett had so much to offer to their wider family but you took all of that away.”
The children’s father, 25-year-old Chris Draper, said he was ‘broken.’ He said in a statement that his daughters had been ‘let down by the system’ and his only comfort was both Scarlett and Lexi are together now.
