Bulgarian Man Sentenced to 20 Years for Beheading Murder

The drug addict that beheaded a British woman on Tenerife has been sentenced to 20 years in a secure psychiatric unit. The judge, Maria Jesus Garcia Sanchez, passed the maximum available sentence for crimes caused by schizophrenia. He repeatedly stabbed 60 year old Jennifer Mills-Westley in a supermarket in Los Cristianos while she was shopping. The court accepted that he was not criminally responsible as he suffered from chronic paranoid schizophrenia. He had previously been detained in north Wales and Tenerife hospitals. The judge also ordered Deyan Deyanov, 29, to pay the victims daughters €100 000.
