A shop worker lured a police detective's teenage daughter to his home and took pictures of himself strangling her to death, it has been revealed after he admitted her murder.

Former head girl Georgia Williams (17), below, was choked to death by Jamie Reynolds, 23, after she spurned his advances.

It emerged earlier that he took a sequence of pictures showing events "before, during and after" the murder before driving her body to North Wales, where he dumped it in woodland and going on the run.

Police piecing together Ms Williams's last moments found the distressing images as well as extreme pornographic images which Reynolds had pasted over with images of his friends' faces.

They also discovered sexual stories that he had written about Ms Williams, Stafford Crown Court heard.

Reynolds, who initially denied the murder, changed his plea on the first day of his trial.

The court heard Reynolds had lured Ms Williams to his home in Wellington, Telford, Shropshire, on May 26 this year, offering to take photographs of her for a modelling portfolio.

But when she arrived he strangled her to death. Prosecutor David Crigman said that there were photographs which only the judge would see moments before and after Ms Williams's death.
