The mother-of-two was found dead on the bathroom floor of Scott’s flat after the alarm was raised when she failed to return from the appointment.

The court heard Ms Haidemac had been living in Boston with her partner and their two children after moving to the UK in 2015.

She was also known to have lived in the Monks Road area of Lincoln.

Scott, of Drummond Road, Skegness, had pleaded guilty to Ms Haidemac’s murder on July 20, last year, at a hearing earlier this month.

Passing a life sentence at Lincoln Crown Court this morning, Judge Michael Heath told Scott he killed Miss Haidemac in a “brutal” manner.

The judge ordered Scott to serve a minimum of 19 years imprisonment before he can be considered for parole.
