"She later received a voicemail from an unidentified number but recognised the defendant’s voice.

"Aston’s voicemail said: ‘Make sure you say bye to him – he’s dead.’"

Aston also posted a series of Facebook messages on fake profiles set up in the victim’s name.

Mr Davies added: "She [the victim] is unable to sleep and is concerned about her mental health.

"She is also concerned about what he will do if and when he is released."
