Killer who torched his lover jailed; HORROR.

A JEALOUS nurse who doused his lover in petrol and set her on fire was jailed for at least 21 years yesterday.

Donna Drepaul, 50, had seen another man the night Aiah Tondoneh, 44, ambushed her at her tower block flat.

She banged on neighbours doors groaning "help me", but was so badly burnt they did not recognise her and were too afraid to let her in.

Police described Donna as "zombie-like" as she staggered towards them at her flat in Finsbury Park, North London. She died two days later.

The Old Bailey heard she wanted to dump psychiatric nurse Tondoneh, of Kilburn, North West London because of his "jealous nature".

Married Tondoneh admitted murder. Sentencing him to life, Mr Justice Nicol said: "The injuries to Donna were the stuff of a horror movie."
