A teenage girl was beheaded by her ex-boyfriend when she returned to his flat to collect her belongings after she broke up with him, it has been claimed.
Wilma Andersson, 17, went missing on November 14 last year, the pair had reportedly been together for two years before she ended the relationship.
Police then searched the man’s flat and reportedly found traces of blood inside, local media reports. Officers claim they then discovered Wilma’s severed head in a suitcase, wrapped in aluminium foil and sticky tape, on November 28. Shabaz, originally from Iraq, has now been charged with her murder and his trial will begin on May 26. Officers are still yet to find Wilma’s body.
Shabaz denies killing Wilma, with local media reporting that he said: ‘If I had murdered her, I would not have cut off her head’.
He consistently answered ‘no comment’ when questioned by officers in April and stated that they were forgetting he loved her. Officers say his DNA and Wilma’s blood was found on a kitchen knife, and his fingerprints were found on the tape that wrapped the head.
Prosecutors claim she was subjected to ‘repeated violence’ during her death. The victim’s mum Linda Andersson reported her missing on November 14 and a total of 5,000 police officers, experts and volunteers were involved in one of Sweden’s largest ever searches.
Mrs Andersson told local TV that she had ‘kept ringing the doorbell’ to Shabaz’s home but he ‘only said they had had an argument and that she just ran out of the apartment.’
Wilma’s coat and handbag were also still inside the flat, and her mum said her daughter would not have left without them. Friends of Wilma also described Shabaz as controlling, and said he would tell her what to wear and where she could go. They claim she repeatedly went to his flat to pick up items before she went missing.
