A convicted murderer has been jailed for 16 years after raping a girl aged 14 and fathering her child.
Mohammed Fethaullah, 58, of no fixed address, is believed to have spiked the girl's drink in a Brixton grocery that he managed.
When she collapsed, he then took her to a secluded area in his car before raping her.
The victim came forward to the police 18 years later in January 2017 after the child took a DNA test.
Fethaullah allegedly spiked the girl's drink in the grocery store in 1999.
She collapsed and drifted in and out of consciousness. She recalled Fethaullah putting her in his car.
He drove to a secluded location and she woke up to find Fethaullah having sex with her on the back seat. He believed she was not aware of what had happened in her state and afterwards drove her home.
The victim found out she was pregnant a short time later. She had a boyfriend at the time and the couple decided to raise the child despite knowing there was a chance the boy could be the product of rape.
The pair split and in November 2016, she went to the police after her boy took a DNA test.
Fethaullah was jailed for 16 years after sentencing. Fethaullah was jailed for life in 2003 for the murder of his own stepmother.
Detective Sergeant Kendal Moore, investigating officer, said: 'Fethaullah is a dangerous predatory individual who subjected a 14-year-old girl to a terrible ordeal. To see him behind bars for this offence after such a detailed and long investigation is very satisfying.
'I would like recognition given to the victim, who in such awful circumstances, found the strength to disclose this traumatic event and come forward to the police some 18 years later; she has carried the weight of this crime on her shoulders all this time and her bravery is truly commendable. I hope she takes some comfort from the jail term handed to Fethaullah today.
'I would encourage anyone who has been the subject of a sexual assault to contact the police in the knowledge that they will be listened to and supported by a team of people who are there to help them.'
