A man has been jailed for life for the murder and sexual assault of his teenage sister.

Connor Gibson, 20, was sentenced to a minimum of 27 years in prison at Sheffield Crown Court on Monday.

He was found guilty of the murder of 17-year-old Ellie Gibson at their home in Sheffield, South Yorkshire, in March last year.

The court heard that Gibson had a history of violence and had previously threatened to kill his sister.

On the day of the murder, he had been drinking and taking drugs and had become angry with Ellie after she refused to give him money.

He strangled her to death and then sexually assaulted her body.

Gibson was arrested a few days later and admitted the murder.

In a statement, Ellie’s family said: “Ellie was a beautiful, intelligent and kind young woman who had her whole life ahead of her.

“She was taken from us in the most horrific way and we will never come to terms with her death.

“We are grateful to the police and prosecution for their hard work in bringing Connor Gibson to justice.

“We hope that this sentence will give us some closure and that he will never be able to hurt anyone else again.”

The judge, Mr Justice Jeremy Baker, said that Gibson was a “dangerous and violent offender” who posed a “significant risk to the public”.

He said that Gibson had shown no remorse for his crimes and that he would only be released from prison when he was no longer considered a danger to society.

The case has shocked the community of Sheffield and has raised questions about the support available to families with troubled teenagers.

Ellie’s family has said that they are determined to raise awareness of the issue and to help other families who are going through the same thing.
