    UK - Joanne Nelson, 22, found strangled, Hull, 13 Feb 2005

    A man who murdered his girlfriend before reporting her missing from their home on Valentine's Day has been jailed for life. Paul Dyson, 30, admitted strangling 22-year-old Joanne Nelson after a row about the laundry at their home in Hull. He had previously admitted manslaughter but changed his plea as his trial at Hull Crown Court was about to begin yesterday.

    The woodmachinist was ordered to serve at least 16 years in jail before being considered for parole at his sentence hearing today.
    Judge

    Cracknell said Dyson practised "hideous indignities" upon Joanne's body.
    "You tied her up, put her inside bin liners, bundled her into the boot of a car and set off on a macabre and calculated journey around Yorkshire to find a hiding place," he said.

    Outside the court, Miss Nelson's family and friends said in a statement: "He has taken away the most precious gift a parent can have - a child.

    "So many lives have been destroyed by her death. We don't have a life anymore.

    "We, her parents, her sisters and all those who have loved her have been cheated. Justice can never been done as Joanne can't come home."

    Dyson strangled Miss Nelson, a Job Centre worker, after the domestic chores argument.

    He dumped her body in remote woodland in North Yorkshire, more than 100 miles from their home in Hull.

    Despite a massive police search, Joanne's body was not found until over a month after her death.

    Boyfriend given life for Valentine's murder

    Boyfriend given life for Valentine's murder

    LONDON (Reuters) - A man who murdered his girlfriend and then tearfully reported that she had vanished on Valentine's Day was jailed for life on Tuesday.

    Paul Dyson, 31, pleaded guilty on Monday at Hull Crown Court to murdering Jobcentre worker Joanne Nelson, 22, having admitted in May that he unlawfully killed her.

    The disappearance of Nelson prompted a massive police search but her body was not found until five weeks later, in woodland in north Yorkshire, miles from her Hull home.

    Dyson made an emotional television appeal for help saying the pair had exchanged Valentine's Day cards and a kiss before she disappeared. In reality, he killed her during what detectives believe was a row about housework.

    Valentine's Day killer given life

    Valentine's Day killer given life
    Paul Dyson strangled 22-year-old Joanne Nelson after an argument about the laundry at their home in Hull, East Yorkshire, Hull Crown Court heard.

    The court heard that after the murder on February 13 this year, Dyson dumped his fiancee's body in a car and drove more than 100 miles to a remote woodland in North Yorkshire where it lay undiscovered for weeks.

    He reported her missing to police on Valentine's Day and made an emotional TV appeal for her return.
    Judge Cracknell said Dyson had carried out "an evil deed" and his deception had caused Miss Nelson's family "grief and torment that is scarcely imaginable".

    He went on to condemn Dyson for going on TV and making an appeal for help in finding his fiancee. The judge told him: "You went on TV and displayed breathtaking and nauseating hypocrisy."

    As the defendant was sentenced, members of the public gallery stood up and shouted abuse at Dyson as he was led away.

    Judge Cracknell added: "On February 13, as a result of an utterly trivial domestic dispute, you lost your temper and throttled Joanne Nelson, a vivacious and popular 22-year-old woman with all to live for, who you professed to love.

    Some new info in this story...

    Paul "Psycho" Dyson had admitted to strangling Joanne Nelson, 22, in a frenzy after she accused him of being so useless around the house he could not even turn on the washing machine.
    He had previously admitted manslaughter and while on remand slashed his wrists, scrawling "sorry" in his blood on his cell wall. Shortly before his trial was due to begin yesterday he changed his plea to guilty to murder.
    Following today's verdict the Nelson family issued a statement which read: "We don't feel sorry for ourselves.


    "We feel sorry for Joanne and the life that she will miss out on."
    __________________________________________________ _____
    New info:
    Last night it emerged that Dyson, a steroid-popping bodybuilder, had attacked his former wife Jenny Clark on their wedding night, beat her frequently and once throttled her until she passed out.
    His father, who he worshipped, stabbed a love rival to death and killed a dad of seven in a hit-and-run crash.


    Former bouncer Dyson, 31, lost his temper as Joanne goaded him about his slovenly ways. He told police: "She said I couldn't switch on the washing machine...which I couldn't."
    No one knows if Paul Dyson revealed his father's secret to Joanne after meeting her while working as a doorman.


    He was 27 and she was 19. Despite the age gap, they were soon living together in Hull and planning to marry.


    But their relationship was increasingly troubled as Jobcentre worker Joanne realised her life was going nowhere with Dyson.


    While she had a flourishing career and a wide circle of friends resentful Dyson, now a wood machinist, had only held a number of low paid jobs.


    There were tensions over Joanne's ambitions to travel the world and constant rows over domestic chores. On the weekend of February 12/13 those strains boiled over into murder. Dyson's already fierce temper may have been worsened by the effect of taking steroids as part of his body building regime.


    He picked up his nickname of "Psycho" from working as a club doorman. But a source at the gym he attended in Hull said: "Although he used to tell of fights at the doors of pubs and nightclubs where he worked I think he exaggerated.


    "Maybe his dad was a hard case. But I have Paul as a fantasist rather than a hard man."
