Smirking paedo GUILTY of murdering mum and daughter and burying them under kitchen | The Sun

PAEDOPHILE monster Andrew Innes has been found GUILTY of murdering a mum and her daughter at their home in Dundee.

Judge Lord Beckett earlier directed jurors to convict Innes on two charges of murdering Bennylyn Burke, 25, and her two-year-old daughter Jellica.

The monster has been sentenced to life behind bars and must serve a minimum of 36 years before being considered for parole.

He decided there was no evidence led during proceedings to show that Innes was suffering from mental impairment at the time he killed the pair. 

The direction emerged on the fifth day of proceedings against Innes, of Dundee, who denied murdering the two women at his home in Dundee.

He also denied charges of raping a seven-year-old girl and attempting to defeat the ends of justice. 

In a video taken days as the monster left court before the verdict, Innes could be seen smirking as hecklers howled abuse as he was led away by officers.

Bennylyn and Jellica's family paid tribute to the pair saying: "Bennylyn was the hope and light of our family.

"That light has been cruelly snuffed out.

“Bennylyn had bright ideas and big dreams.
