17 Year Old Fan Of TV Serial Killer Dexter Jailed After Killing and Butchering Girlfriend

Posted in: ,

A teenage fan of the serial killer from TV Show, Dexter has been jailed yesterday for the murder of his 17-year-old girlfriend, who he ferociously stabbed before dismembering her body in a "blood-curdling" killing. Miles, now 17, has been jailed for 25 years.

Steven Miles, who was 16 at the time of the murder, killed Elizabeth Thomas in the bedroom of his home in Oxted, Surrey on January 24 this year.

Having stabbed her in the head and back, he went on to dismember her legs and an arm, wrapped the limbs in clingfilm and placed them in bin bags, before covering her body in a green plastic garden sheet.

The teenage politics student used saws and tools from his father's tree surgeon business to cut up Elizabeth's body.

The boy, who had been diagnosed as having an autistic syndrome, told his family that he had an alter ego called Ed who had instructed him to kill someone.

When the defendant's sister returned home to the flat about an hour after the murder, Miles told her: "Ed made me do something bad."

During the sentencing hearing at Guildford Crown Court, the court heard that Miles had a fascination with horror movies and the macabre and had wanted to emulate the actions of Dexter - the lead character of an American TV series about a police forensics officer who is also a serial killer.

Judge Christopher Critchlow told Miles: "This is a case of the utmost gravity, the horrific features of which are rarely heard in any court.

"Nothing this court can say or do, no sentence this court can impose can alleviate the pain suffered by Elizabeth Thomas' family for death in such a terrible manner. There must be a life sentence."

“It’s hard for this court to remain unemotional. Their lives have been changed forever. It’s difficult to find the right words to describe the enormity of what you did to an innocent girl of 17 and a half,” judge Critchlow said.

“You decided, at the age of 16, you had to kill somebody, you chose Elizabeth Thomas, who tragically befriended you and who had stood up for you when people described you as different. It’s chilling to read that you described her on occasion as your project,” judge Critchlow added.
