'Pure and unmitigated evil'

The court also heard that at the time of the offence, Todd lived with his parents in Broadmeadows in a home of "rotting refuse" and "squalor" which would have affected his emotional state.

The judge denounced Todd's killing as within the most serious category of murder offences.

"The sheer terror that Eurydice must have experienced … is unimaginable," Justice Kaye said.

"Her last moments on this earth must have been utterly horrifying for her.

"Eurydice was then doing what she — and any other person in our society — is entitled to do, namely walking peacefully in a public area of our city.

"She was vulnerable and in the circumstances defenceless.

"In a most callous and cowardly manner, you set upon her, sexually assaulting and humiliating her, before cruelly strangling her to death.

"You intentionally killed Eurydice Dixon by choking her to death in order to gratify your perverted and depraved sexual desires."

The court heard Ms Dixon died of compression of the neck and asphyxiation, and also sustained blunt force injuries to the head and other parts of her body.
