A Derby man who murdered and tortured his partner at their home was today jailed for life and must served at least 32 more years in prison.
Atual Mustafa murdered Sohbia Khan at their home in Pear Tree Crescent in Normanton.
On Tuesday, a jury needed just 45 minutes to convict him.
The court heard that, after Mustafa met “confident, intelligent, bubbly” Ms Khan, originally from Bradford, he “lured” her to live with him in Derby.
But, he became controlling and then subjected her to “domestic violence on a savage scale”, inflicting horrific injuries which eventually killed her.
He was today sentenced by high court judge Mrs Justice Sue Carr at Derby Crown Court to life in prison and must serve 32 more years as a minimum. She sentenced him to a minimum term of 33 years but went on to explain that he had been in jail on remand for 339 days so his final minimum term was 32 years and 26 days.
