Re: A couple who killed a Cardiff woman in a bungled drugs robbery have been jailed at Cardiff Crown Court.<br />
Nadia Jones, 38, was beaten and strangled by Kial Ahmed and Roxanne Deacon at her home in the Tremorfa area of the city in September.<br />
Ahmed, 34, of Trowbridge, pleaded guilty to murder and robbery and was given a life sentence on Wednesday.<br />
Deacon, 26, pleaded guilty to manslaughter and robbery and was sentenced to 13-and-a-half years.<br />
The judge told Ahmed that he must serve at least 19 years.<br />
The court heard that the pair also "desecrated" the body of their victim, as they recovered drugs and cash that had been hidden on her person.<br />
In an impact statement to the court, Ms Jones's mother Diane Catty said the death of her daughter was "extremely unfair".<br />
"Nobody should have taken Nadia away from us," she said.
