'Shock' over witchcraft murderer Eric Bikubi


People who knew 28-year-old Eric Bikubi have spoken of their shock to learn that the promising football coach killed a teenager believing him to be a witch.

On Thursday, Bikubi and his girlfriend Magalie Bamu were found guilty of murdering her 15-year-old brother Kristy Bamu.

Kristy, from Paris, who was visiting his sister, drowned in a bath in a flat in Newham, east London, on Christmas Day in 2010.
