Cerys Yemm's sister says her murder 'ruined our lives'

The sister of a woman killed at a hostel in Caerphilly county has spoken of the effect it has had on her family.

Cerys Yemm, 22, was attacked by Matthew Williams at the Sirhowy Arms Hotel in Argoed on 6 November 2014.

Police officers stunned Williams, 34, with a Taser but he later died.

An inquest jury ruled Miss Yemm was unlawfully killed, while Williams died as a result of taking drugs and struggling against police restraint.

Cerys' sister Shannon Yemm told the BBC Victoria Derbyshire programme she had nightmares and her brother had lost his hair.

"It's ruined our lives," she said.
