A former nightclub bouncer has been
jailed for a minimum of 35 years for murdering a pregnant teenager two weeks
before she was due to give birth.
Carl Whant, 27, of Bettws, Newport, raped and stabbed 19-year-old Nikitta
Grender at her home, killing her unborn daughter at the same time.
He set fire to her flat before returning to a party where he had been all
night with her boyfriend.
Michael Brunnock, Nikitta Grender's uncle: "We will never deal
with the tragic events that have stolen our family from us"
Whant was convicted of murder, rape, child destruction and arson.
Ms Grender had already named her baby girl Kelsey-May.
Outside Newport Crown Court after the verdict, the victim's uncle, Michael
Brunnock, said in a statement: "The last 12 months have been harder for us than
you could ever imagine.
"And as a family we remain in total disbelief as to what has happened.
