Couple guilty of nanny murder over Boyzone obsession

Sabrina Kouider, 35, and Ouissem Medouni, 40, killed Sophie Lionnet over a bizarre obsession with an ex-Boyzone popstar.

The shy 21-year-old au pair was starved and tortured by the pair in the weeks leading up to her death in September last year.

She was beaten, killed and thrown on a bonfire by her employers after being accused of being “in league” with Kouider’s ex-partner Mark Walton, a founding member of the Irish boy band.

Mother-of-two Kouider and Medouni interrogated their nanny for hours to extract some sort of “confession” to confirm their “perverted suspicions”.

Snippets of more than eight hours of mobile phone recordings of the defendants’ interrogations were played to the jury.

Miss Lionnet suffered a fractured jawbone hours before her death and she is also known to have suffered bruising, and fractures to her sternum and ribs between 36 hours and three days before dying.
