These are the last movements of tragic teen Megan Newton before she was raped and murdered in her own home by drugged-up Joseph Trevor following a night out.

Kindhearted Megan, 18, let Trevor - who was high on ketamine and “maybe cocaine” - stay in her flat as an “act of kindness” after she was concerned he was too drugged-up and drunk to go back to his parents home.

But, shortly after entering Megan’s flat, sicko Trevor raped and stabbed the teen at least nine times before taking her key to leave her Stoke flat.

He was then spotted walking along Campbell Road with blood on his hands and throwing Megan’s key away.

The pair met each other at Newcastle-under-Lyme nightclub Kiln and - after recognising him as someone she went to school with - offered him a place to stay.

CCTV released showing final movements of Megan Newton before she was murdered by Joseph Trevor

Stafford Crown Court heard Newton and Trevor arrived at the Fletcher Road flat at 4am, when the former Newcastle Town footballer proceeded to rape, strangle and stab her.

Trevor, now 19, then left Stoke Town footballer Megan - who had recently signed up for an FA coaching course - naked on her bed and he was later found by Staffordshire cops, sitting on a bridge back in April, last year.

Officers took him to Harplands Hospital before he was collected by his dad.

Senior Investigating Officer, Detective Inspector Cheryl Hannan, said: “Trevor carried out a sustained and violent assault on Megan.

Kindhearted Megan offered Trevor a place to stay

“She had kindly offered him a place to stay overnight because he had taken drugs and had been stopped by the police and was worried about returning home.

“In return, he attacked and killed her and left her lying in her own bed while he let himself out and told no one what he had done.”
