A man who murdered two sisters at random in a park has been jailed for life, with a minimum term of 35 years.
Danyal Hussein, 19, repeatedly stabbed Bibaa Henry, 46, and Nicole Smallman, 27, at Fryent Country Park in Wembley, north-west London, on 6 June 2020.
He killed them after a birthday party in a supposed “sacrifice” he claimed he believed would give him a lottery win.
Their bodies were found by Ms Smallman’s boyfriend the day after they had been reported missing to police.
The defendant, who was convicted of two counts of murder at an Old Bailey trial in July, sat facing away from the court as he was sentenced.
Speaking outside court, the sisters’ mother Mina Smallman said justice had been done for her “beautiful girls”.
On their killer, she said: “He’s just an obnoxious human being. He is a broken human being who – if he had not been caught – four other families may have been suffering what we have.”
Jurors had heard how the teenager embarked on a “campaign of vengeance” against random women. Hussein apparently thought that if he sacrificed six women, this would help him win a Mega Millions Super Jackpot lottery prize of £321m.
Hussein stabbed Ms Henry eight times before slashing Ms Smallman 28 times as she fought back. He then dragged the bodies into bushes.
Ms Smallman’s boyfriend Adam Stone told the court how he had screamed and fell to his knees upon finding them 36 hours later lying top to toe and intertwined.
Sentencing Hussein, from Blackheath in south-east London, Mrs Justice Whipple said he had dragged the bodies away and posed them in an embrace to “defile” them in death.
She said: “You had found these two women. You were a stranger to them. You surprised them, you terrified them and you killed them.
“You committed these vicious attacks. You did it to kill. You did it for money and a misguided pursuit of power.”
The judge said the lives of his victims’ loved ones had been “shattered”.
