A man in the UK who did not want his pregnant girlfriend to have his child and had a history of abuse, including threatening to cannibalize her, stabbed her to death with a pair of scissors to which he boldly confessed the act according to a report:
A man who stabbed his heavily pregnant girlfriend to death with a pair of scissors has been found guilty of her murder.
Ioan Campeanu, 44, was found guilty of killing 28-year-old Andra Hilitanu and their unborn child in their flat in Neasden in north-west London at the Old Bailey.
Prosecutors said the attack was Campeanu’s “final act of brutality” after “years of violence” towards her.
Police found Ms Hilitanu with multiple stab wounds in the bathroom when they arrived at their flat on 1 June following a call to emergency services by Campeanu.
In his 999 call, he said: “She’s dead, I killed her,” adding that he had done it with scissors.
Prosecutor Brian O’Neill QC said Ms Hilitanu’s cousin had previously seen Campeanu kick her in the groin, saying: “I’ll kill you Andra, I’ll eat your flesh.”
Jurors were shown CCTV images of Campeanu leaving the scene at 12.44am on 1 June, appearing to drive into central London before returning to Neasden.
Mr O’Neill told the court: “No one else other than this defendant could have killed Andra, it being his final act of brutality against her after months and years of violence.
“He attacked her and their unborn child, plunging a pair of scissors into her neck and leaving them both to die as he went for a drive.”
Earlier on the night of 31 May, the couple’s neighbour in Neasden complained to their landlord that he could hear them fighting, the court heard.
Ms Hilitanu could be heard screaming and repeatedly saying “da, da, da”, which translates to “yes, yes, yes”, jurors were told.
Shortly after midnight, Campeanu phoned his daughter in London to say he had “got rid of her”.
His daughter said she was aware her father and Ms Hilitanu were using drugs that were making him “confused and destroying him”, Mr O’Neill said.
She also said her father “had not wanted any more children”, the court heard. (source)
