She stabbed Bethany and DJ at his house last year.
He then led police on a 24-hour manhunt before reportedly stabbing an off-duty police officer in the leg when they tried to stop him.
Bolton previously pleaded guilty to two counts of involuntary manslaughter, but denied killing the mother and son in 2020, saying he was on “automatic pilot.”
He also pleaded guilty to assaulting PC Stephen Dennis with intent to resist arrest the day after the murders and robbing a vacant cabin on Hubbards Hill.
But a jury at Lincoln Crown Court found him guilty of murdering the mother and son.
Boulton will be sentenced tomorrow for the double murder in the same court.
In the hours before the double murder, Boulton “wandered” out of his house for hours after walking 28 miles to reach it.
The court heard that Bethany had a restraining order against Boulton at the time of her death following a complaint to police in November 2019.
A new restraining order was issued after another incident in February 2021, but Boulton continued to show up at Bethany’s house and send her messages.
Jurors were told that social services were involved with the family after Bethany first reported Boulton for domestic violence in November 2020.
She was ordered not to contact her ex, but she “repeatedly broke” the order, sending him nearly 900 messages on Facebook the weekend before the attack.
Prosecutor Katherine Goddard QC told the court that she too had developed a “hate” for Darren, that she had autism.
She also threatened to “erase” her family lineage before going on a rampage.
On the day of the attack, she walked 28 miles to her home, where she repeatedly stabbed the couple.
Police found Bethany lying in the living room and Darren on her bedroom floor, both with stab wounds and blunt force trauma.
The family had moved to an address Boulton was unaware of just days after the attack.
A nine-month-old baby was also found crawling around the house alone, and was “clearly distressed” but physically unharmed.
After launching into the callous attack, Boulton calmly left the scene before spending the night on the run.
He broke into a vacant cabin where he stole some alcohol, clothing and food and left a note saying “I, Daniel Boulton, take full responsibility.”
The next day he was discovered by duty policeman Stephen Dennis, who tried to stop him but was stabbed in the leg.
He fled PC Dennis, but was later cornered in a barn and tasered after trying to get some of the armed officers to shoot him, the court heard.
Justice Pepperall told the jury that they would be excused from jury service for five years after the “extremely distressing” trial full of “real horrors.”
