S03E10 - Sabah Khan (The Murder of Saima Khan)

In the tenth and final episode of British Murders Season 3, I tell the story of sisters Sabah and Saima Khan.⁣⁣
On May 23, 2016, Sabah brutally murdered her older sister Saima at their shared family home in Luton, England.
Sabah had been having an affair with Saima's husband Hafeez for a period of 4 years and felt that she could have him to herself if Saima was taken out of the picture.
Saima was stabbed a total of 68 times by her younger sister in an attack that lasted a total of 8 minutes.

Sabah Khan was sentenced to life imprisonment in October 2017 with a minimum term to serve of 22 years before she is eligible for parole.
