Gordon dismembered the victim’s body with a circular saw before making several trips to the Forest of Dean, Gloucestershire, to conceal her remains in suitcases.
Bristol Crown Court heard she then carried out a series of ‘detailed, organised actions’ to pretend Miss Netts was still alive while she disposed of her body.
She sent messages, emails and made voice calls to Miss Netts’ family and friends while purporting to be the victim, telling them she was moving to London.
Internet searches including ‘how to fix punctured lung’, ‘can someone recover from getting stabbed’ and ‘internal bleeding’ were made between 1.04pm and 3.07pm on the day of the murder, the court heard.
A post-mortem examination found Miss Netts had suffered four stab wounds to the front of her torso, heard the court.
Gordon was arrested on May 12 after officers found her beside a quarry near Coleford in the Forest of Dean with two suitcases, which contained the remains of Miss Netts.
