THE devastated parents of murder victim Kim Fuller, who was strangled by her former lover at his Soham home, say they are the ones serving the life sentence.

Pete and Connie Goddard, from Exning, are still angry and think of 34-year-old Kim every day.

"I do not think we will ever get over it and, even though it has been two years since she died, it does not get any easier," said Mrs Goddard. "I think about her every day and I am still very angry about what happened.

"It is Pete and I who are serving the life sentence."

Kim was strangled on March 3, 2005 by Sean Hilton after he invited her to the home they used to share together in Brook Street, Soham, in a bid to mend their failing relationship.

Hilton, who had a history of domestic violence and would often fly into jealous rages, killed his former lover and dumped her body in a disused airfield in Norfolk.

She was discovered three days later still wearing the uniform of the Nationwide Building Society, where she worked.

Hilton was sent to prison for life after being convicted of murder at Cambridge Crown Court, in February last year.

"He knew what he was doing when he killed her," said Mrs Goddard. "He took away her right to live and, although we are able to take some comfort from knowing he is behind bars, we know he will be allowed out of prison one day and he will be able to live a normal life.
