The Murderer Of Sabina Nessa Has Been Found Guilty At The Old Bailey

Koci Selamaj, the man who murdered primary school teacher Sabina Nessa, has been sentenced to life in prison with a minimum of 36 years.

Nessa's death added the the sense of insecurity felt by women walking through city streets at night, in the wake of the murder of Sarah Everard by a police officer in 2021.

The judge at The Old Bailey noted Selamaaj's lack of any previous convictions, stating: “It is striking, this feature of the defendant's case, that he lacks any criminal record.

It is not suggested that the defendant had any remorse upon murdering Sabina Nessa, a true act of remorseless cowardice”.

Nessa's body was found in Cator Park in the Kidbrooke area of south-east London, last September.

She was killed while on her way to meet a friend, the body was obscured by the autumn leaves.
