A heartless boyfriend has reportedly killed his girlfriend with a walking stick and even went ahead to set her on fire. According to reports, David Dunstan, 42, launched the “horrifying” attack on Carolyn Hyatt, 43, who he had only been in a relationship with for a month, in the early hours of August 6 last year at his mum’s home. The hooligan smashed his girlfriend over the head with a metal bar and walking stick before pouring white spirit over her body and igniting it.
It was gathered that Carolyn survived the initial beating and called 999. She was then rushed to the Queen’s Medical Centre in Nottingham but sadly, she died days later after a decision was made to turn off her life-support machine three weeks later.
Dunstan of Mansfield, appeared at Derby Crown Court on Wednesday and pleaded guilty to murder.
