A 15-year-old blond-haired, native Danish girl in Denmark was sentenced to a mere nine years in prison for stabbing her mother to death to please her 29-year-old Islamist boyfriend, prosecutors say.
Last October, Lisa Borch stabbed her mother, Tina Römer Holtegaard, up to 20 times after she and her radical Islamist boyfriend, Bakhtiar Mohammed Abdulla, spent the evening repeatedly watching ISIS beheading videos and other terror propaganda, court documents say.
The teenager met the 29-year-old Islamist at a local refugee housing center and began seeing him regularly. The girl’s mother was against the coupling and the two reportedly got in constant fights about the situation.
Lisa’s twin sister even reported that she moved out of the house because of the constant fighting between her mother and sister.
Before long Abdulla seems to have convinced the teen girl to murder her mother so that the two could run off to Syria and join the ISIS Jihad.
During the girl’s trial, officials told the court that after murdering her mother the teen called police saying, “I heard my mother scream and I looked out the window and saw a white man running away. Please come here, there is blood everywhere.”
When police arrived they found Mrs. Holtegaard dead and the teen quietly playing with her cell phone.
During the investigation, police said they found computer records that indicated that the teen had been watching ISIS videos for much of the evening of the murder.
“This murder was cold blooded, ice cold and committed in a bestial manner,” state prosecutor Karina Skou told the court.
The teenager was sentenced to one year in a juvenile detention center and then an additional eight years in prison.
Police charged Abdullah with the murder, as well. He was sentenced to 13 years in prison, after which he will be deported from Denmark.
