A woman was killed after she wanted to leave her older lover for his 18-year-old son, a court in England heard.

Julie Beattie, 24, began a relationship with a much older man and the two had 4 children together.

However, the woman eventually began hanging out with his 18-year-old son. When she wanted to leave the man for his son the man became angry.

The angry man poured gas over her and set the woman on fire, burning 90 percent of her body.

Julie Beattie began dating Ashley Williams, 49, when she was just 16 years old. Beattie and Williams had four children together, making him a father of 12.

Her sister, Lucie Beattie, told the court that when the victim wanted to act her age, have fun and get a tattoo, Mr. Williams would not allow her to do so.

When Beattie told her children’s father that she was going to leave him for his son, Ashley Williams Jr., the father became angry.

Williams allegedly doused her with gas, set her on fire and hit over the head with a hammer. The woman’s sister walked into the house and heard her screaming.

Beattie was taken to a hospital where she died of her injuries. Mr. Williams denied the allegation of murder.
