A 39-year-old Nigerian man, Marvyn Iheanacho, who was arrested for beating his five-year-old stepson, Alex Malcolm, to death for losing a shoe, has bagged a life sentence after being found guilty at Woolwich Crown Court in the United Kingdom, Sun reports.
The jurors of the court was said to hear that Iheanacho had taken Alex with him to pick up DVDs from his friend’s place on November 20, 2016. On the way, the pair stopped at Mountsfield Park in Hither Green where a witness overheard that the child saying ‘sorry’ for losing his shoe before he attacked him.
Jurors were shown footage of Iheanacho carrying Alex in a “fireman’s lift” away from the park and towards a taxi rank where he asked for a cab to his girlfriend Lilya’s home.
When he arrived at the address, Iheanacho attacked his partner to stop her calling an ambulance, and shouted: “Keep your fing mouth shut.” It was learnt that Iheanacho suggested putting the schoolboy in a bath before wrapping him in a towel and assaulted.
According to a report by Vanguard, Williams faces 20 years in jail for mail fraud, aggravated identity theft, voter fraud and illegally re-entering the US after being initially deported.
