A heartbroken mum tells her daughter's brutal killer that "he no longer has any power" to hurt her.
Fighter Sayle Kenneth Newson who trained with world champions, beat his girlfriend Carly McBride to death and dumped her body in a shallow grave which laid undiscovered for two years.
Newson was found guilty in June by a Supreme Court jury in New South Wales, Australia, almost seven years since Carly, 31, disappeared.
The court heard that Newson had taken the drug, ice when he pummelled her head, ribs and back, causing 39 fractures as he killed her.

Carly's bereaved mother Lorraine Williams, spoke of the damage Newson has done to her family in a powerful victim impact statement to Justice Mark Ierace during a sentence hearing on Monday morning.
Ms Williams said: "Carly should be here living her life. After today I never want to hear, speak to or see the man who took my beautiful daughter’s life ever again.
"He did the worst thing a human could do to another person when he murdered her. He no longer has any power to hurt me and I refuse to think of him anymore."

Her daughter's death plunged Ms Williams into a constant "black hole of grief", even rendering her homeless when her lease had run out but could not face finding somewhere else.
Life for the grieving mum became a "blur of grief and anxiety" and recurring nightmares when asleep.
She added: "I just want my old life back.
"I don’t want to be known as a mother of a murdered child, that’s a club I would never wish on anyone. There is no going back."

The day in 2016 that police told her how a body suspected to be Carly's had been found, "was the worst day of my life," Ms Williams said.
She continued: "The grief, loss and horror I experienced that day is unimaginable.
"I knew she was gone but I didn’t want it to be true."
Newson will appeal his guilty verdict.
His barrister Chris Watson said: "We say the offending was spontaneous and unplanned."
Justice Ierace will hand down his sentence at a later date.
