    The tattooed bodybuilder who slit a TUI travel agent's throat has begun writing a book for his three-year-old daughter explaining why he did it, a former cellmate has claimed.

    Andrew Burke butchered Cassie Hayes at a Southport TUI branch in January because he was jealous of her relationship with his ex-girlfriend Laura Williams, a court heard.

    He began writing the book prior to being sentenced, reports the Daily Mirror.

    Chris, who was serving three months in HMP Liverpool for breaching a suspended sentence, said: 'He's writing his daughter a book about what he's done and why he did it.



    'He was in the cell with me for four days and had written 13 pages.'

    The inmate also claimed that Burke showed no remorse and laughed at Miss Hayes 'sh***y little wicker basket' coffin after seeing her funeral on TV.

    He added: 'He said he’d do it again. I asked him if it was worth it and he said, "Yes".'

    Liverpool Crown Court heard earlier this month that the horror unfolded on a busy Saturday afternoon in January this year when Burke walked into a TUI travel agent’s branch in Southport where Miss Hayes, 28, worked as an assistant manager.

    As families – including children aged nine and 12 – planned their summer holidays in the store, Burke approached Miss Hayes, who was on the phone.

    He told a cashier, ‘I just want to apologise for what I am about to do’, then stood behind Miss Hayes, lowered his hood and in an act of ‘unspeakable savagery’, slit her throat with a 12cm kitchen knife.

    Chris has also said he was scared of Burke but convinced officers to move the killer to another cell.

    After complaining about the food and conditions he was moved into the cell next to Chris, where he claims he heard him being attacked by four other inmates.

    In April Burke was jailed for at least 26 years after he admitted murdering Miss Hayes
