A Man (Daryll Paterson) who Killed his Girlfriend by strangling her before he slashed her throat has been jailed for life. It was reported that on April 28, 2020, Daryll Paterson committed the same attack on Former Dental Nurse Louise Aitchison at the home they shared in Park Terrace, East Kilbride, Scotland. The attack was sparked by an alcohol-fuelled fight between the couple, who had been together since 2019, the court heard. He was arrested after admitting his crime to a friend and his sister, confessing: 'I've done something really bad'. The argument between the pair escalated and Paterson strangled his girlfriend before striking her in the neck with a knife leaving a 'gaping wound.' Police found three washed knives in the flat and Louise's body covered in blankets in a bedroom. As Paterson pleaded guilty to the murder at the High Court in Glasgow, a judge slammed him for 'betraying the love and trust' of his partner. “You pled guilty to the murder of Louise Aitchison, a woman whom you had been living with as your partner," Glasgow judge Lady Stacey told Paterson “She was only 33 years of age. She had served the community here and overseas and had much to look forward to. “She was entitled to look to you for love and support but you betrayed her trust and by your actions you took her life. “You know that you killed Louise and now you will have to live with that knowledge for the rest of your life.” Defence QC Donald Findlay told the court that Paterson had had a difficult childhood and his life was blighted by alcohol. He added: 'The pair met by chance and through their love of dogs began a relationship. 'He really does not have a clear recollection of how this came to pass. He has various snapshots. 'He does accept the two of them had a considerable amount to drink, there was clearly some kind of argument which gathered momentum and got out of hand.
