“It has had a huge impact on our family and hearing that someone was finally charged with her murder has given us hope that we can finally have some closure.”

Samantha Davidson, from the CPS, said that Kay had performed a “brutal attack upon a defenceless, elderly lady in her own home”.

She added: “In the quarter of a century since her murder, Kay must have thought he had got away with his terrible crime. But he has not.

“Advances in forensic science provided the scientific evidence needed to convince the jury of his guilt.

“Our thoughts remain with her relatives, and we hope that the verdict today brings them some closure.”

West Yorkshire Police said that Kay’s DNA was found on a hair on the pensioner’s neck, as well as the tea towel that was used to strangle her.

Detective Superintendent Chris Gibson said: “We never close a case until it is solved and today we have been able to get justice for Amy and closure for her family.

“Kay might have thought that he had ‘got away’ with what he did but the advances in DNA techniques mean that we are increasingly able to bring people to justice for their crimes, even if they were committed many years previously.”
