LONDON, Aug. 24 (UPI) — A dozen years after a woman’s body was found in a suitcase in a parking lot at London’s Heathrow International Airport, her accused killer has been convicted.
Youssef Ahmed Mosalem Wahid, 42, who was extradited from Bahrain, was convicted Monday of the murder of Fatima Kama, the Uxbridge Gazette reported. Sentencing is set for October.
Kama, 28, a Canadian citizen had been planning to leave for Montreal July 17, 1999. A security guard found her body that morning.
Investigators said she was raped and then stabbed.
Wahid and Kama had been living in the same house in London. Security cameras showed him carrying the suitcase onto a train to Heathrow, but by the time he became a suspect he had fled the country.
Police finally located Wahid in Bahrain last year.
