STRAFORD-UPON-AVON, UK — A 20-year-old woman was brutally murdered by her former boyfriend and his transgender girlfriend as part of a bizarre love triangle that unfolded at the apartment they all shared in the picturesque town of Stratford-upon-Avon.

On February 3, 2015, Jack Williams and Kayleigh Woods bound Bethany Hill’s hands with tape before slitting her throat and eventually severing her jugular vein.

Before killing Hill, the couple had practiced torture on a “fetish” Barbie doll that was taken by police as evidence. Williams and Woods initially claimed that Hill committed suicide, but were both convicted of her murder and jailed for 26 years to life.

Hill was said to have a volatile and emotionally complex relationship with Woods, 23, a transgender woman with whom Hill had planned to have a child, Warwick Crown Court heard at the start of their trial.

Prosecutors said that Hill had a short relationship with Williams, 21 when she was a teenager.

In 2015, she moved into an apartment with the couple in Hertford Road. She used the bedroom, while Woods and Williams slept in the sitting room.

Woods has testified that her relationship with Williams had turned abusive, and he had threatened her with a knife. She claimed he would talk about rape and murder, and the desire to commit violence. She stated, “He would say about he wanted to take someone’s eyeballs out and rape their eye sockets, and take someone’s skin off, and about mass murder.”

After one incident, Williams was taken away by the police, and the terms of his release were that he and Woods were not to see one another. But Woods missed him, and Williams claimed to be taking medication and getting help, so they started to see each other again.

On the night of the attack, Woods dialed emergency services and said that her “best friend” was dead in the apartment. Police discovered Hill dead in a blood-soaked bathroom, where they say her body had been lying for at least 12 hours.

Woods told the jury that she did not know in advance that her then-boyfriend was going to kill Hill. She claimed to have not taken part, but to have been forced to help Williams cover up the crime.

But prosecutor Stephen Linehan said, “We submit you will conclude it was a sadistic killing by Williams, and that Kayleigh Woods joined in in a bid to please him.” He also stated that it was his opinion that the slaying may have been committed for “perverted pleasure.”

Hill’s family described her in court as a “fun loving, girly girl” who people loved having around. “Beth was killed by two people who have shown no remorse or understanding of how their monstrous actions have impacted on our lives and so many other lives,” they added.
