Cardiff sword killer Kane Burns caught on CCTV buying shovel

Kane Burns killed his friend Mohamed Megherbi with a samurai sword in his flat in Cardiff after he had insulted his mother.

CCTV footage shows him buying a mop and items to clean the scene in October last year.

He later bought paint, rollers and a shovel, which he used to bury Mr Megherbi's body in a shallow grave in woodland in Pentwyn.

Burns, 26, of Llanedeyrn, has been jailed for 10-and-a-half years after admitting manslaughter at Cardiff Crown Court.
