Life sentence for Swindon house fire murderer

A woman has been sentenced to life in prison for murdering a man by setting a house on fire and locking him inside.

Michael Redpath, 62, was pulled from the house in Albion Street, Swindon, but died in hospital from burns and the effects of breathing in smoke.

Patricia Louise Hindle, 31, of Crombey Street, Swindon, was told by the judge at Winchester Crown Court she must serve a minimum of 20 years in jail.

The fatal fatal attack happened in September 2014.

Speaking after the conviction, Supt Sean Memory from Wiltshire Police said Mr Redpath's final moments "must have been terrifying".

He described how Hindle "ran away from the scene and made attempts to cover up her crime by disposing of his keys and bank cards".
