A woman accused of a sustained and fatal campaign of domestic abuse against her lesbian lover has a personality disorder, her murder trial heard. Becky Reid, 32, regularly battered mother-of-one Lyndsey Vaux, 30, leaving her "looking like the elephant man", with her head so badly swollen, Manchester Crown Court heard. Reid, along with her mother Gillian, 57, both from Wigan, are jointly charged with the murder of Miss Vaux and grievous bodily harm on another woman, Samantha Newns, now 37, a previous partner of Becky Reid. In the months before Miss Vaux died on May 22 last year, she appeared downtrodden, malnourished, hungry and thirsty and was constantly bruised and going downhill rapidly after suffering at the hands of both mother and daughter, it is alleged. Often Miss Vaux would be sent out begging by Reid to feed her own alcohol and cannabis habits and if she did not bring back enough money, would be beaten, the jury heard. On Friday, the jury heard that by the age of five, Reid was said to be "out of control", with her mother and father "unable to cope".
