    A man who killed two girlfriends five years apart has been jailed for life.

    Robert Trigg was convicted of murdering 52-year-old Susan Nicholson in 2011 and of the manslaughter of Caroline Devlin, 35, who died in March 2006.

    The judge at Lewes Crown Court told Trigg, 52, he would serve a minimum of 25 years in prison.

    Sentencing Trigg, Justice Ingrid Simler said: “I hope what you will do is reflect on your role… in causing these senseless deaths.”

    Both deaths in Worthing, West Sussex, were treated as not suspicious at the time but the family of Ms Nicholson refused to accept foul play had not played a part in her death.
