Tunisian immigrant jailed for killing in Britain
MANSFIELD landlord Abderrahmen Dhaou, who stabbed to death his lodger Kynan Eldridge on the town's Oak Tree Lane Estate, was sentenced to a minimum of three years in prison today –– and could face deportation after his release.
The 36-year-old Tunisian immigrant killed the Mr Eldridge in a 'frenzied attack' at his Findern Court property on 5th September last year.
He denied murdering the 31-year-old but admitted manslaughter on the grounds of diminished responsibility at an earlier hearing after psychiatrist reports found he was suffering from a mental illness at the time of the stabbing.
At Leicester Crown Court today –– just over a week after the anniversary of Mr Eldridge's death –– Judge Michael Pert said Dhaou must be assessed by a parole board as to whether he poses a risk to the public before he can be released and will be on licence for the rest of his life.
He also told Dhaou that he was recommending he be deported after completing his sentence.
