Algerian MUSLIM POS who raped a nanny and decapitated his neighbour had his life sentence cut by six years today. Mohamed Boudjenane, 49, assaulted the Filipina woman and shaved off her hair before killing Lakhdar Ouyahia, 43, in the belief the two were having an affair.
UK DAILY MAIL (H/T Maria) Boudjenane was captured on CCTV carrying the head of Mr Ouyahia in a plastic bag on a bus to Regents Canal in Maida Vale, West London.
The headless corpse was found wrapped in a duvet two days later at the back of a supermarket near Boudjenane’s home in Kilburn, North-West London. The Algerian showed police where he had thrown the head in a canal and police divers recovered it from the water.
But he claimed he had no memory of hitting Mr Ouyahia with a hammer and hacking off his head with a meat cleaver. Boudjenane was convicted of murder, two counts of rape and false imprisonment by an Old Bailey jury in 2008.
It also emerged Boudjenane was still claiming welfare benefits when he should have been thrown out of the country in 2001.
Judge Christopher Moss QC jailed the Algerian for life, with a minimum term of 22 years. But the murder conviction was quashed last year after the Court of Appeal ruled the trial judge had misdirected the jury on psychiatric evidence.
When the case was referred back to the Old Bailey in September this year, Boudjenane pleaded guilty to the lesser charge of manslaughter by reason of diminished responsibility.
The Recorder of London, Judge Peter Beaumont QC, jailed him for life with a minimum term of 16 years after hearing he suffered from a ‘paranoid and delusional disorder’ at the time of the killing. (CRAP! All he suffers from is Sudden Jihad Syndrome, an inbred genetic personality trait common to all muslims)
He said: ‘Given the extreme nature of the violence perpetrated both before and in carrying out the killing, the protection of the public, and indeed the elimination of risk to the public, is paramount.’
However, the fresh psychiatric evidence meant there should be a ‘substantial reduction’ in the minimum term originally imposed, he added.
The sentence will run concurrently with the 15-year jail term imposed in 2008 for the rape and false imprisonment offences.
Boudjenane met the 42-year-old Filipina nanny at a party a few months before the attack, the Old Bailey heard at the original trial.
