Marvin Gentles was attacked after tracking El-Gharras down

A Moroccan drug dealer was jailed for life on Thursday for killing his boss, chopping the body into 133 pieces and throwing them into a canal before setting his flat on fire in a bid to destroy evidence.

Abdul El-Gharras, 31, was obsessed with decapitation and had downloaded videos of al Qaeda beheadings before murdering Marvin Gentles last June in an argument over crack cocaine, the Old Bailey criminal court heard.

He stabbed his victim 26 times, cut up the corpse, stuffed the pieces into plastic bags and wheeled them to the canal in a shopping trolley. The murder came to light when a passer-by spotted one of the bags and pulled it out of the water.

After disposing of the body, El-Gharras returned to his flat and tried to clear up the mess. When he failed, he doused it in petrol and set fire to it.

El-Gharras pleaded guilty to murder and will serve at least 18 years and eight months before being considered for release.
