Daily Mail reports that a jury found the Kalejaiye not guilty of murder, but “guilty of manslaughter by reason of diminished responsibility, due to mental health issues” after a trial in April last year. Ever since then, he had been in a secure hospital for psychiatric assessment to decide “whether his mental condition rendered him a danger to the public.”

The case was re-presented in court on Thursday, and he was subsequently sentenced to life in prison with a minimum of 15 years and three months.
Judge Christopher Ball, who presided over the case said: ‘This was an horrific killing. You drew up plans to kill her, over weeks, if not months, and to dispose of the body.’
Ball added that mental illness played a part in the killing and said Kalejaiye would receive treatment in jail.
