Killers of a shy French 21-year-old nanny Sophie Lionnet, have been found guilty by a jury and jailed for at least 30 years each today.
Sabrina Kouider and Ouissem Medouni convinced themselves that their nanny, Sophie Lionnet was spying on them for Kouider’s ex, former Boyzone member Mark Walton. Kouider’s obsession with Walton drove her and her partner to increasingly extremely lengths as they tortured and interrogated Lionnet, who had never even met the former popstar.
Pictures taken just days before her death, showed Lionnet emaciated and weak at the couple’s home near Wimbledon, south London. She was killed in the bath. Kouider and Medouni initially denied Miss Lionnet’s murder, blaming each other for her death.
