Retired bus conductor Barry Reeve, 67, was found murdered in his home in Norwich, Norfolk, in February last year.
It is thought he lay dying for up to 48 hours after the attack, during which he was punched, stamped on and slashed with a knife in an attempt to force him to disclose his PIN number so the pair could take his money.
Drug addicts Kelly Barnes, 32, and Jodie Barnes, 31, of Norwich, who were in a civil partnership, had both denied murder, blaming one another for the killing.
Jailing them for life, Judge Peter Jacobs said: "The man who you killed was frail, old and vulnerable and lived on his own". Full story here.
