    In un'intervista alla polizia, the defendant previously made no comment except to deny murder when asked directly if he was responsible for killing Ms Nessa.

    Ms Nessa had made plans to meet a friend at The Depot bar in Kidbrooke Village on the evening of September 17.

    His reservation was for the night of September 17 and he arrived earlier in the day to check in.

    Sabina’s sister Jebina Yasmin Islam broke down as she addressed crowds.

    Lei disse: "Le parole non possono descrivere come ci sentiamo", sembra che siamo bloccati in un brutto sogno e non possiamo uscirne – our world is shattered, we are simply lost for words.

    ‘No family should go through what we are going through.

    The vigil came after public outrage and debate over women’s safety and policing in the wake of the murder of Sarah Everard, who was killed by a serving Met Police officer.
