“It’s a sickening image and a sickening thought. It was something we never wanted or asked for. Lola will not even have the memories the boys do of Mike.

“She was only six days old. She was robbed.”

Father-to-be Michaelee Emmett, 29, and a friend, tried to drop Connor Doughton off with his parents after finding him drunk outside a pub.

But a court heard the teenager then grabbed a knife from inside the house and began to attack them.

Doughton has been jailed for a minimum of 15 years for the murder, reports Wales Online.

Mr Emmett suffered a deep wound to his liver and died a month later in a coma in hospital.

Ms Preece said her partner was in paid “for 24 hours of every single day” during those four weeks.

She said: “He was asking me every day for the date as he was counting down to the day our daughter was born.

“He was desperate not to miss it. He begged me to let him be with me when our daughter was born but even that was taken away from us.

“I, along with our eight-year-old twins, watched him go through that suffering praying that he would be ok.

“I sat with him, bathed his feet, talked to him and comforted him and put on a brave face for the man I love.

"Inside I was terrified, desperate for him to survive and come home.”

Ms Preece said her children have been “through hell”.

She said: “They waited day after day for news of their daddy.

"For the 28 days they asked for him, cried for him and called for him. Desperate to have him home.

“They waited for him to get better.”

She added: “At eight-years-old they have learnt there’s evil in this world.”

Ms Preece said: “I am just 28. I am a mother to three beautiful children and six months ago my life was perfect.

"I shared it with the man I loved. We were a perfect family.

"It’s all been ripped away from me. I have had to give permission for the man I love to have his life support switched off.

"I can’t explain how this felt but I hope none of you will have to feel even a fraction of the pain I have felt.”

She said: “He chose to take away my soul mate, my children’s father. Our lives have been devastated in every single way.”

The teenager admitted murdering Mr Emmett.

The court heard the teenager had admitted taking valium and drinking cider that night.

Prosecutor James Wilson said the officer who arrested him said he was unsteady on his feet and smelt of intoxicants but that he believed he was on drugs.

Mr Wilson said: “The attack took place shortly after Michealee and his friend John Williams had tried to walk him home from the pub.

“They intervened after he had been abusive and aggressive.”

Demolition worker Mr Emmett had seen the boy at the Stone House pub in Cefn Forest, near Blackwood, being abusive to a woman.

The court heard how they told him not to speak to women like that and a scuffle had broken out.

The pair then tried to escort the teenager home but when they arrived the boy ran inside and 30 seconds later emerged with a kitchen knife which he used to attack both men.

Mr Emmett died of his injuries after being transferred to a specialist liver intensive care unit at Kings College Hospital in London.

The father-of-three died after complications following a liver transplant.

Mr Williams sustained three stab wounds in his attack. In a statement, he said: “I feel weak and vulnerable. I don’t want to feel like this.

“I only hope given time I will become stronger.”

The teenager admitted murder, wounding with intent and assaulting a police officer.

His barrister, Lucy Crowther, said the teenager has a “severe conduct disorder”.

She said his family wanted it said in open court that they were sorry for the offence their son committed.

“The utter horror of heinous offence their son committed to another family – they think every day about the family who lost their loved one.

“He [the defendant] has asked that it is said in open court that he is truly remorseful for his appalling crime.”

He is due to be sentenced on Thursday.
