Message of vigilance from Sonia's family is timely
Sonia Blount was brutally murdered by her ex-boyfriend Eric Locke. Locke assumed a fake identity on Facebook and lured her to a hotel bedroom where he strangled and suffocated her to death.
The mother-of-one was found in a room in the Plaza Hotel in Tallaght, Dublin, on February 16, 2014.
Locke was unanimously found guilty of her murder at the Central Criminal Court earlier this week and sentenced to life imprisonment by a judge.
