Drug addict Andrew Roberts was sentenced to two life terms at Swansea Crown Court for killing his girlfriend and baby daughter
At the time of sentencing, Roberts was accused of the ‘depraved and brutal destruction’ of his own family
Louise L’Homme and her baby daughter Tia, middle. were strangled to death by Roberts
The alleged offences took place while the prison guard was working at HMP Isle of Wight in Albany, Newport – less than two miles from the courtroom she appeared in last week.
McIntyre allegedly had a sexual relationship with Roberts, and failed to report to anyone that she knew he was in possession of a mobile phone.
She is also said to have provided Roberts with her mobile number, communicated with him and sent him a snap of herself.
McIntyre has also been accused of “sanctioning” the beating by Roberts of fellow officer Samuel Laidler – who is believed to live on the Isle of Wight.
The prison guard is alleged to have given Mr Laidler’s personal mobile number to Roberts – and didn’t warn the guard that he might be in danger of an “impending” attack.
McIntyre is accused of wilfully and without reasonable excuse or justification misconducting herself in a way which amounted to an abuse of the public’s trust in the office holder.
‘DEPRAVED AND BRUTAL’
Heroin addict Roberts was convicted in 2003 of strangling his girlfriend Louise L’Homme and their eight month old daughter Tia to death at their home in Rhondda, South Wales.
Their bodies were found under an upturned bed at their terraced house after Roberts went on the run, the BBC reported at the time.
He was sentenced to two life terms at Swansea Crown Court by a judge who accused him of carrying out the “depraved and brutal destruction of your own family”.
Appearing in the dock at Isle of Wight Magistrates Court in a light green dress, McIntyre spoke only to confirm her name and date of birth.
