He packed a murder kit, including a hunting knife, and filled a 20-litre jerry can with petrol as he drove to her home.

Mr Martin climbed in through a window left ajar for the cat and stabbed Jay’s new man Billy Hicks, 24, when he found him in her room.

He then poured petrol around and lit it. The fire was so intense the floor collapsed. All three died from smoke inhalation in Kirton, Lincs.

Coroner Paul Smith recorded unlawful killing verdicts on Jay and Billy and a suicide verdict on Mr Martin in Boston.


He added: “It is clear from the evidence that he gave a significant amount of thought and planning to his escapade.

“He made a number of chilling purchases from the store en route. He brought petrol and I am satisfied that he was searching for Jay.”

The coroner added: “Following the break up of his relationship, he behaved out of character.
