UK: “The hammer didn’t do it, I had to strangle her to kill her,” says MUSLIM asylum seeker who murdered his girlfriend, 17
A failed MUSLIM asylum seeker from Iran who strangled his British girlfriend to death after learning he was to be deported, was jailed for at least ten-and-a-half years today.
(Thats ALL? Kill the Muslim bastard by beheading)
DAILY MAIL Ako Amin, 19, flew into a rage and battered 17-year-old Cheryl Tariah with a hammer after she showed up at his hostel bedroom unexpectedly. He then grasped his hands around her neck, choking her to death in a ‘prolonged’ attack, the Old Bailey heard.
A neighbour overheard Amin shouting out other men’s names, before Cheryl told him: ‘Don’t hurt me, leave me alone and get off me.’ The shouts were followed by screams and choking that could be heard through an open window in the street below.
After covering his victim’s body with a duvet, Amin casually strolled to a nearby library, where he bragged to a friend: ‘The hammer didn’t do it – I had to strangle her.’
Iranian-born Amin, applied for asylum, but was rejected and he had exhausted the appeals process the day before the killing on February 7 this year.
Judge Richards Marks QC told him his ‘wicked act’ had deprived Cheryl’s mother – whose husband died in 2010 – of a loving daughter’s ‘comfort and support’.
‘This is a shocking incident in which a young woman has lost her life and the consequences for Cheryl Tariah’s mother can only be imagined,’ he said. ‘She lost her husband in 2010 and is left by herself to look after a severely autistic son. ‘She now no longer has that comfort and support through your selfish and wicked behaviour – for there is no other way to describe it.
Cheryl, who lived in Tottenham, north London, and was studying art at Chelmsford College in Essex, had been in an ‘on-off’ relationship with her killer for around a year.
But she often found him to be possessive, jealous and controlling. ‘He refused to let her talk to other boys or let her go to parties,’ said Mrs Whitehouse. ‘It was said he hacked into her Facebook and email accounts and changed her password to stop her sending messages.’
