Mohammud Yusuf, 32, inflicted horrendous injuries on frail pensioner Amoe Stevens, 64, while his two young sons sat in the next room in the home they all shared in Cairnfield Avenue.

The pensioner had suffered a stroke in the past and as a result her mobility and speech had been severely impaired.

The Old Bailey heard Yusuf, who had an obsession with violent pornography, then left Mrs Stevens to bleed to death at around 8pm on October 18 last year.

A post mortem revealed she had died of haemorrhaging.

An expert concluded the most likely cause of the injuries was through a violent sex act, said prosecutor David Jeremy QC.

Examination of Yusuf’s phone later revealed searches for sexually-explicit terms and pornographic videos showing violent rape, gang rape and incest.

Mr Jeremy said: “When you put alongside each other what must be a clearly deviant interest this defendant had in pain and degradation of women and what happened to Mrs Stevens, there is a relationship between them.

“The effect of that is that it makes it more likely that it was this defendant who would have carried out that assault.”

Yusuf, also of Cairnfield Avenue, denied responsibility for the injuries but was convicted of murder by the unanimous verdict of a jury.

Judge Nicholas Browne QC said he would sentence him on Friday after hearing submissions on whether the killing was sadistic, adding: “This lady suffered the most agonising death imaginable.”

He told the jury: “I have never come across such a factual background of a case like this.

“I would like to thank you for your steadfastness and resilience during an enormously distressing case.”

Yusuf’s wife, Margaret Stevens, wept as the jury returned their verdict.

She said in a victim impact statement that the case had devastated the family.

DCI Noel McHugh, investigating officer, said: “This was a truly horrendous crime committed against a vulnerable and defenceless woman.

“We believe Yusuf had assaulted Mrs Stevens on multiple occasions but due to her disabilities she was never able to communicate with her family and expose his sickening actions. We also believe that Yusuf is sexually deviant and may well have tried to target other women in his past.

“We would urge anyone who came into contact with Yusuf and had concerns about his behaviour to come forward and contact our Incident Room on 020 8785 8099.”
