"A teenager was tied to a tree and forced to drink petrol before being doused in the liquid and set alight by two love rivals.
Simon Everitt, 17, was bundled into the boot of a car and driven to secluded woodland where he was lynched by Jimi-Lee Stewart, 24, and Jonathan Clarke, 19.
All three men had been sleeping with the same married woman, 19-year-old brunette Fiona Lysaght, who, a court heard, had 'played the boys off against each other'.
During a period of a few months she slept with all three of them, sometimes 'cheating on one with another', causing tensions to boil.
Stewart and Clarke, who are now 25 and 20 respectively, were yesterday convicted of murder.
During the four-week trial, the jury heard the slaying was inspired by the spoof British horror movie Severance, in which a woman is bound to a tree and turned into a human torch.
An accomplice, Maria Chandler, 40, who drove the men to the murder scene in Mautby, near Great Yarmouth, Norfolk, was also found guilty of murder.
