TWO killers who savagely beat father-of-three Michael Hunt and left him naked in a South Norwood skip to die have been given life sentences. Fiona Nalty, 25, of Fairdene Road, Coulsdon, and Arry Green, 22, of Dinsdale Gardens, South Norwood, brutally assaulted Mr Hunt, 37, following a row in a cab office in Station Road, South Norwood on March 15. They were each given life tariffs at The Old Bailey this afternoon and both must serve a minimum of 19 years before being considered for release. Former Coloma Convent schoolgirl Nalty had denied any involvement in Mr Hunt's killing throughout the trial, while Green had offered a plea of manslaughter but denied murder. The pair, who were said to be having an affair at the time of the murder, were found guilty of murder yesterday by jurors after just a morning's deliberations. They both knew Mr Hunt and met him at some point after midnight on March 15 in South Norwood. Mr Hunt, of Holmesdale Road, was found by a member of the public in a skip down an alleyway stripped naked except for a black bandana around his neck the morning after the attack. He was taken to hospital with injuries including a fractured skull but died later the same day. Nalty and Green had punched, kicked and stamped on Irish native Mr Hunt during the attack. Judge Stephen Kramer QC, in his sentencing remarks, said despite the fact the pair were both drunk, they "knew perfectly well" what they were doing and their attack was "brutal, sustained and lethal". He added: "You took advantage of a gentle drunk, a passive man described as a 'happy drunk'." Judge Kramer said the aggravating factors in the case far outweighed any mitigating reasons outlined by the pair's legal representatives, including their "humiliation" of Mr Hunt by stripping him naked. Neither Green or Nalty, who both have young children, gave much reaction when their sentences were read out. Judge Kramer also criticised their attempts to "evade their responsibilities" in the aftermath of the murder. Both Nalty and Green were arrested at different addresses to their own and the footwear they wore on the night was never recovered.
