A couple will be jailed for life today for torturing and drowning a teenage boy they accused of being a witch.

15 year old Kristy Bamu was killed by his 29 year old sister Magalie and her partner Eric Bikubi, who was 28.

He died in a bath at their tower block flat in Newham, east London, on Christmas Day 2010 after days of being abused.

Kristy had come to London from Paris with his two brothers and two sisters to spend the festive season with Magalie.

But things turned sour when the couple, who were said to be obsessed with witchcraft, accused him of putting spells on a younger child.
