A BRITISH expat has confessed to killing his wife in Mallorca and faces 12 years in prison after a making a plea-deal in a Palma court today.

CONFESSION: Lyttle admits strangling wife Lisa Jane

The plea-bargain was struck in court today with prosecutors originally seeking a 20-year sentence for murder and the trial to continue tomorrow.

Car salesman Lyttle had claimed the mum-of-one died during a sado-masochistic sex game gone wrong.

Lyttle, who expressed regret for his crimes, has now admitted choking Lisa Jane to death with a mobile-phone cable during a fight over money after he had been drinking.

“Not a day goes by when I don’t regret what I did,” he said. “At first I didn’t realise she was dead.”

The couple’s daughter had reported Lyttle to British police for abusive behaviour.

Lyttle, a car salesman, had phoned police and emergency services following the incident, but they were unable to arrive in time to save Lisa Jane.

Several hundred local residents attended a vigil at Calvia Town Hall following Lisa Jane’s killing.
