A man has pleaded guilty at Swansea Crown Court to the rape and murder of a 67-year-old grandmother in a Carmarthenshire village.

Irene Lawless was found dead at her home on the Bryndulais estate in Llanllwni in January.

Dyfed-Powys Police said the case against Darren Martin Jackson, 26, who is originally from Kent, was adjourned for sentencing.

Ms Lawless had been described locally as a "well-liked and independent lady".

Her son, Jason, said at the time that his mother was a "a loving mother and grandmother, a really peaceful person who loved the garden, animals and her paintings".

Ms Lawless had lived on the village's Bryndulais estate for many years.

Local people had spoken of their shock in the quiet community, south of Lampeter.
