Builder Mark Brown found guilty of murdering Leah Ware and Alexandra Morgan and incinerating their bodies

The 41-year-old was described as having a "double life" and showed no signs of being violent before committing his crimes at a remote farm near St Leonards in East Sussex

A builder who described himself as a "psychopath with a conscience" has been found guilty of murdering two women who he met at a sex work website.

After murdering 34-year-old Ms Morgan, Brown put her head-first into a home-made incinerator before dumping her remains at a building site.

The body of 33-year-old Ms Ware has never been found, but the prosecution believe he used a similar technique to dispose of her remains - as well as killing her dog, a Pomeranian called Lady.

The jury of 10 men and two women took just over 10 hours to convict Brown of both murder charges on Thursday.

Brown stared blankly ahead as the verdict was read out to gasps from the public gallery, made up of several of Ms Ware's and Ms Morgan's family members.

The 41-year-old was described as having a "double life" and showed no signs of being violent before committing his crimes.
