(Updated 5:06am 2nd December 2011)
A man has been jailed for the murder of a mum near Callington.
Amanda Sorrell was beaten to death last year.
She was discovered at her Stoke Climsland cottage by a colleague, worried she had not turned up for work.
Her killer, John O'Rourke from Milton Abbot in Tavistock, was lying next to her battered body.
The 66 year old had denied the charges, telling the court he had no memory of events running up to it.
He will serve at least 14 years behind bars.
