Becky Watts's stepmother has insisted she still loves her killer son and will visit him in prison in a quest for answers.

Anjie Galsworthy described her porn-obsessed son Nathan Matthews as a monster after he was convicted of brutally murdering his 16-year-old stepsister at Bristol Crown Court on Wednesday.

Matthews' long-term girlfriend, Shauna Hoare, was found guilty of manslaughter and trying to cover up the crime.

They are due to be sentenced today, along with Jaydene Parsons (23), and Karl Demetrius (30) who owned the shed where Becky's body parts were hidden. The pair admitted assisting an offender.

Mrs Galsworthy told ITV's Good Morning Britain (GMB): "I still love him, I just find it hard looking at the monster he's turned into. He's totally different from the child I brought up. I will ask him why - why this happened."

She and her husband Darren -Becky's father - thought police had made a mistake when they accused the pair.
