A man who drove to London in order to attack a stranger has been jailed for life with a minimum term of 36 years for the murder of primary school teacher Sabina Nessa.

Koci Selamaj, 36, killed Ms Nessa in a park in Kidbrooke, south-east London in September 2021.

CCTV footage captured him striking the 28-year-old over the head until she was unconscious, before carrying her away.

He then strangled her, removed some of her clothes and tried to hide her body.

Selamaj, a garage worker from Eastbourne in East Sussex, travelled to London intending to assault a random woman after he was spurned by his estranged wife, the Old Bailey heard.

Ms Nessa, who taught a year one class at Rushey Green Primary School in Catford, was found nearly 24 hours later near a community centre in the park.
