THIS is the haunting moment a young female football coach is seen with her killer moments before he murdered and raped her and then fled covered in blood.
Megan Newton, 18, was stabbed in the back nine times after offering sick Joseph Trevor, 19, a place to stay for the night.
And in horrifying CCTV, Megan can be seen smiling as she lets Trevor into her flat after a night out in Newcastle-under-Lyme in April last year.
It is there the sick 19-year-old strangled and raped Megan – leaving her bloodied body in her bed as he fled the home and threw away keys to her apartment in an attempt to cover his tracks.
Stomach-churning footage then shows Trevor looking at his bloodied hands as he flees.
The student was yesterday jailed for 21 years for killing Megan after he confessed to friends he had “done something bad”.
The court had previously heard Megan had bumped into Trevor on the tragic night of her death at the Kiln nightclub in Newcastle.
And the teen told her that he was worried about returning to his parents’ home after having been stopped by the police earlier on suspicion of drug offences.
It is then that Megan offered Trevor, who she knew from school, a place to stay in an act of kindness – with the pair taking a taxi back to her home.
The CCTV shows the pair arriving at the Fletcher Road home, where Trevor then unleashed the sick attack.
He then fled the scene, covered in blood.
He was later found by police sitting on a bridge, sparking concerns for his welfare.
But after Megan’s body was found by a concerned neighbour who had found her keys, Trevor was later arrested and charged.
Senior Investigating Officer, Detective Inspector Cheryl Hannan, said: “Trevor carried out a sustained and violent assault on Megan. She had kindly offered him a place to stay overnight because he had taken drugs and had been stopped by 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.
“Megan was a young and gifted teenager who through hard work and dedication had achieved so much with opportunities to achieve so much more.
“Trevor’s actions have taken this away from Megan and the chance for her family to see her continue to thrive as a woman who they were rightly so proud of.”
In a statement, Megan’s family said their loss was “unbearable”.
They added: “We’re heartbroken and will always remain so. That will never leave us. Meg’s life enriched the lives of so many and because of that, she’ll never be forgotten and she’ll be loved forever.
“Our beautiful Megan didn’t deserve any of this. But she does deserve to now rest in peace.”
Sentencing, Judge Michael Chambers QC, said: “This remains a brutal and sustained attack committed in a most callous way in her own home.
“Megan Newton had her whole life before her. She had all the hopes and dreams of an 18-year-old.”
Trevor was sentenced to 21 years and 65 days. He was also sentenced to eight years for two counts of rape to run concurrently.
