Couple guilty of witchcraft murder

A couple have been found guilty of killing a teenage boy they had accused of witchcraft.

A jury at the Old Bailey convicted Eric Bikubi and Magalie Bamu for the murder of 15-year old Kristy Bamu on Christmas Day 2010.

Kristy was tortured and drowned in a bath in a council flat in east London.

In a statement read out after the verdict, his family said they had forgiven his killers, but they would never forget.

Alison Holt reports.
