London 2012: Two more monsters convicted of 'Witchcraft' related murder

This is the squalid flat in which a 15-year-old boy was beaten stabbed and eventually drowned after a three-day long ordeal after his sister and her partner accused him of witchcraft.

Kristy Bamu, 15, was tortured and drowned in a bath on Christmas Day 2010 by his sister Magalie and her partner Eric Bikubi.

They believed he had cast spells on another child in the family, the Old Bailey heard.
Today football coach Bikubi, 28, and Magalie, 29, of Newham, east London, were found guilty of murder by a jury and are now facing life in prison

They were remanded in custody to be sentenced on Monday.
Following the verdicts, Scotland Yard announced it had investigated 83 cases involving abuse resulting from ritualistic or faith-based beliefs, and brought 17 prosecutions, over the last 10 years.

However the depravity of this case shocked investigators, who found a blood-stained flat laying testament to the cruelty involved.

Kristy was in such pain after three days of being attacked with knives, sticks, metal bars, and a hammer and chisel that he 'begged to die' before slipping under the water.

He had refused to admit to sorcery and witchcraft and his punishments in a 'deliverance' ceremony became more horrendous.

He had come to London with his two brothers and two sisters from their home in Paris to visit Magalie during the Christmas holiday in 2010.

But Bikubi turned on them, accusing them of bringing kindoki - or voodoo - into his home.

He forced them to pray for deliverance for three days and nights and deprived them of food and water.

The sisters, aged 20 and 11, were beaten along with Kristy, but escaped further attacks after 'confessing' to being witches.

Kristy was singled out after wetting his pants. He was struck in the mouth with a heavy bar and hammer, knocking out his teeth.

Ceramic floor tiles and bottles were smashed on his head and and a pair of pliers used to twist his ear.
The terrified siblings, who also included a 13-year-old boy and an autistic brother aged 22, were made to join in the torture.

At one point, Bikubi told the youngsters to jump out of the window to see if they could fly, the court heard.

They looked to their older sister to save them, but instead Magalie encouraged Bikubi and beat Kristy until he also confessed to witchcraft.

Sister Kelly, now 21, broke down several times in court as she relived the terror.
She said: 'They started talking about kindoki, witchcraft and this and that.
'It was as if they were obsessed by witchcraft and then it became absolutely unbearable.
'They asked if we were witches. I repeated again and again and again that we were not witches.

'I did not know what was going on in their minds. They decided we had come there to kill them.'
Kelly added: 'Kristy asked for forgiveness. He asked again and again.

'Magalie did absolutely nothing. She didn’t give a damn. She said we deserved it.'
Calling Magalie 'an idiot', Kelly said: 'I am sure she still believes even to this day that we are witches.

'I have no pity for her. She had no pity for us.'
