A British teenager was sentenced to life behind bars on Thursday for the murder of two sisters in a London park as part of a supposed blood contract with a demon.
Daniel Hussein, 19, was slapped for at least 35 years in prison in his sentence after a judge said his age prevented him from life imprisonment, The Guardian newspaper reported.
Husayn used his blood to sign a written agreement with the demon “Lucifuge Rofocale” to make “six sacrifices” of women every six months in exchange for winning the lottery.
He halted his end of the diabolical bargain in June 2020 by attacking Pippa Henry, 46, and her half-sister Nicole Smallman, 27, as they were leaving a birthday party.
The maniac repeatedly stabbed his victims in Fryent Country Park, cutting off his hand and spraying his blood on the victims and their property.
He stabbed Henry eight times and Smallman 28 times before dragging their bodies behind a bush.
“This was a calculated and deliberate course of conduct, meticulously planned and executed,” said Judge Philippa Whipple.
“While pact with Satan may seem strange to others, this was your system of beliefs, your obligation to kill innocent women.”
The teen refused to testify at the trial and denied responsibility for the horrific satanic contract and murder, according to the Guardian.
He was convicted in July.
Hussain was defiant as he actually attended the sentencing on Thursday, and it appears he was seen smiling and playing catch-up with his face mask while waiting for the judge to arrive, MyLondon reported. When Judge Phillipa Whipple spoke to him, he turned his chair off the camera as if to turn his back on the judge, BBC mentioned.
Mina Smallman, the mother of the victims, said justice was served after the verdict.
“He’s an abhorrent person,” Small was quoted by the BBC as saying. “He’s a broken human being – if he hadn’t been caught – maybe four more families would be suffering from what we have.”
