Mussie to be sentenced for double Wakefield murder

Man to be sentenced for double Wakefield murder

An asylum-seeker who murdered two teenage girls and left their bodies in a Wakefield flat will be sentenced today.

Ahmad Otak stabbed his ex-girlfriend’s sister, 17-year-old Kimberley Frank, and her friend Samantha Sykes, 18, in March.

Otak, 21, who is from Afghanistan and entered the UK in 2007, visited Kimberley’s flat in Barden Road to discuss his stormy relationship with her sister Elisa before the murders took place.

He pleaded guilty to two counts of murder at a previous hearing at Leeds Crown Court.

After he entered the pleas, Judge Peter Collier warned him: “As I’m sure you will understand, the sentence for murder is fixed by law and the sentence that will be passed on you in due course is one of life imprisonment.”

Appearing via videolink from Wakefield Prison, Otak denied two further charges relating to the kidnap and false imprisonment of Elisa Frank.

He also pleaded guilty to carrying a blade - a kitchen knife - in Wakefield on the day of the murders.

He will be sentenced at Leeds Crown Court.
