LONDON (AP) — A British jury on Thursday found a couple guilty of torturing and murdering a 15-year-old boy whom they accused of witchcraft.

Magalie Bamu and her partner Eric Bikubi, originally from Congo, were convicted of killing Magalie’s brother Kristy Bamu, who drowned in a bathtub on Christmas Day 2010.

Prosecutors at London’s Central Criminal Court said the teenager had 130 injuries inflicted by sticks, a metal bar, a hammer and a chisel. They said he eventually drowned after being forced into a bathtub and doused with cold water.

The boy “had been the victim of a prolonged attack of unspeakable savagery and brutality,” prosecutor Brian Altman told the jury.

Good lord! "...a hammer and a chisel..."

Feed these two perps into a wood chipper, feet first, slowly. They've earned it, and it seems fitting.

Prayers for their victims.

I’d like to do that to all the bureaucrats in every western country that changed immigration policies to favor these types of immigrants.

I was talking to a fellow Christian about someone doing something comparably horrible and admitted that I could never inflict enough pain or do justice, which is why I simply say to the Eternal Judge, “Have at it.”

Yes, true. My horror and disgust, and my wish that these two suffer severe pain, can of course not happen, nor would I be personally able to inflict such a punishment on anyone. But God's eternal wrath will surely be directed on these monsters. I have read stories of what He has done, and I trust in His ultimate justice, no matter if the pale imitations here on Earth may fail.

This unspeakably vicious and horrible torture and murder is a vivid illustration of why civilized countries MUST have the death penalty. It is another crime that these subhuman insects will not receive it in the UK (as far as I know).
