Muslim who killed wife for defying him is jailed for 22 years
A HUSBAND was jailed for a minimum 22 years yesterday for savagely killing his wife who converted to Islam in a desperate attempt to please him.
Akshar Ali killed Sinead Wooding for allegedly defying his orders
Akshar Ali, 27, killed Sinead Wooding, 26, because she had allegedly defied his orders not to see her family and friends.
He beat her with a hammer then stabbed her to death before setting her body alight.
He stashed her body in the cellar at the home of his lover Yasmin Ahmed, 27.
Ahmed helped Ali clean up with the help of friend Vicky Briggs, 25, after he had taken mother-of-four Sinead’s corpse to woodland, doused it in petrol and set it ablaze.
Ahmed was also jailed for a minimum 22 years by Leeds Crown Court for her part in the killing. Briggs was found guilty of assisting an offence and jailed for four years.
Ali fathered two children with Sinead, from Leeds. But the couple had reportedly agreed to separate.
In text messages, Ali slammed his wife for mixing in social circles of which he did not approve. Sinead continued to see a woman friend and her family after Ali had “forbidden” her from visiting them.
