A husband has admitted murdering his wife in north London.

Tanzanian Kema Salum, 39, had previously denied killing 36-year-old Leyla Mtumwa.

The mother-of-one was repeatedly knifed in the neck and chest at the home they shared in Kirkstall Avenue, Haringey, on 30 March.

With the assistance of a Swahili interpreter, Salum spoke to confirm his name at the Old Bailey before pleading guilty to a charge of murder.

He will be sentenced on 5 October.
