NEW pictures from inside the flat where a man murdered his ex-girlfriend’s new lover have been revealed.
Frank Moore was sentenced to 22 years in prison today (Tues) for the killing of Stewart Taylor, 33, and the attempted murder of Lynsey Methven, 30.
Moore had stalked Methven for a number of weeks following the break-up of their relationship.
He attacked Methven and Taylor at her home in the upmarket Grange area of Edinburgh on February 7, leaving them unconscious.
He then left them to die in a fire he started in the flat, locking the door behind him and taking Mr Taylor’s mobile phone.
Firefighters pulled the pair from the blaze but Mr Taylor died at the scene.
Doctors said he had suffered head injuries which could have killed him. Ms Methven survived the fire but was left blind in one eye and deaf in one ear.
Following the blaze he burned the boots he had been wearing, claiming they had a cut which was letting in water.
Moore was caught after Taylor’s mobile phone was found hidden on top of a fuse box at the building site where he worked.
Traces of Lynsey Methven’s blood were also found on the driver’s seat of Moore’s van.
