Sunderland, England ( Daily Mail, Feb 21,2018):Two handymen raped a mother and burnt her alive before taking a grinning selfie as they drove away from her blazing body, a court heard.
Stephen Unwin and William McFall sent depraved social media messages to each other in the three weeks before they murdered Vietnamese nail technician Quyen Ngoc Nguyen, 28, after a five-hour ordeal at Unwin’s home, it was alleged.
Jurors were told that on the night of the killing, McFall messaged Unwin asking: ‘Are we raping the ch***?’
The pair are alleged to have held Miss Nguyen – also known by her English name of Anna – at the house, raped her, and then forced her to hand over PIN numbers to her bank cards.
Prosecutor Jamie Hill, QC, told Newcastle Crown Court: ‘The prosecution say that the motive for this killing was a combination of warped sexual fantasy and greed.’
Unwin, 40 and McFall, 51, were caught on CCTV leaving Unwin’s home in Houghton-le-Spring, Tyne and Wear, with what prosecutors say is Miss Nguyen’s body wrapped in a white sheet.
Unwin carried Miss Nguyen, who stood less then 5ft tall, over his shoulder while McFall pulled down the sheet to try to obscure her from security cameras that were attached to the house next door, it is alleged.
