Following the sentencing, Senior Investigating Officer Detective Chief Inspector Chris Gibson, of the Homicide and Major Enquiry Team, said: "Monika was a much loved mother, daughter and sister, whose life was tragically cut short.

"Our thoughts continue to be with Monika's family, who have shown great dignity and strength through what has understandably been a devastating time for them.

No verdict or sentence will bring Monika back to her family. I hope however, that in getting justice they can begin to move forward with their lives."
