She was today caged for life after previously being found guilty of murder.

Co-defendants Jason Edwards, 25, and Lee Strickland, 36, were also convicted of murdering Dr Jenkins in Bute Park, Cardiff.

The court was told Timms-Williams was seen laughing as she punched and kicked the consultant psychiatrist.

The brutal attack was motivated by “greed, homophobia and a straightforward liking of violence”.

In a harrowing 15 minute audio clip, Dr Jenkins could be heard as he was “cruelly beaten, robbed, tortured and left for dead”.

Timms-Williams could be heard yelling “money” and “now” before a slew of homophobic insults were directed at the dad-of-two.

Dr Jenkins repeatedly pleaded “why” and “please, stop it” before his pained moans grow quieter.

The teen then demanded “Get down”, “Do it all over again”, “Do it”, “Hit him again” as a male voice added: “Stamp on his head. Stamp on his head too.”

At one stage, passer-by attempts to intervene but is then assaulted.

The girl says: “Yeah, I needed that.”

Bystander Louis Williams, who bravely fought back to the stop the attack, described the girl as “f***ing evil and sadistic”.

Dr Jenkins, who lived alone in Cardiff after separating from his wife six years earlier, was taken to hospital but died two weeks later.

Prosecutor Dafydd Enoch QC described the teenager as a “very troubled young woman”.

He said: “We ask you not to make the mistake in this case of assuming that 16-year-old was some sort of wilting flower caught up in something that was not of her making.

“The reality is a million miles from that scenario. For her to have acted in that way she must be a very troubled young woman.

“She was loud and confident and was laughing during the attack. It was torture, pure and simple.”
