For only eight years. Is that because he is a juvenile? “Jailed For Honour Killing,” from SkyNews, with thanks to Mackie:
A teenager who killed a six-year-old girl in a so-called honour arson attack has been jailed for eight years.
Daryll Tuzzio, 18, bought the petrol that was used in an attack on the home of Alisha Begum in Birmingham in March.
Mr Justice Field told Tuzzio that he would spend four years at a young offenders institute and the remainder of his sentence on licence.
Sentencing, Mr Justice Field said that although Tuzzio had been cleared of murder, the manslaughter of six-year-old Alisha was a “grave crime”.
While nine of her family escaped through the windows, Alisha was trapped in her bunk bed and suffered 95% burns.
She later died in hospital.
The prosecution said the attack was over the relationship between 15-year-old Meherun Khanum and Alisha’s elder brother, Abdul Hamid, 21.
Tuzzio’s co-defendant, Ahmed Hussain, who is Meherun’s 26-year-old brother, was cleared of murder and nine charges of attempted murder….
Police are still hunting one of Hussain’s brothers and a family friend in connection with the arson attack.
They are believed to have fled to Bangladesh.
