A 21-year-old woman from East Ham was jailed for a minimum of 15 years today following the death of a 27-year-old woman at a North London flat.
Kinse Aidid, of Denbigh Road, was convicted at the Old Bailey for the brutal murder of Hamdi Jiumala.
Another woman, Magdalena Agathine, 21, of no fixed address, was found guilty of manslaughter and sentenced to nine years in prison.
Hamdi’s badly beaten, naked body was found in a flat by police at Gainsborough House in Enfield on Thursday, September 17, 2015.
Officers attended the scene at 9.20pm after reports from the London Ambulance Service that there was a dead woman at the property.

CCTV captured Aidid beating Hamdi outside the flat on the Wednesday evening, which was witnessed by neighbours, before both women were seen returning to the flat. Hamdi had previously called a friend to say she was having trouble with two women in the flat.
Police enquiries later revealed that Agathine had made calls to a man, recorded on loudspeaker, during which she and Aidid had admitted to beating their victim “pretty badly”.
Det Chief Insp David Whellams, said: “Hamdi Jiumala suffered a violent death at the hands of Aidid and Agathine who consistently lied about the events of that night and failed to take responsibility for their actions.
“They lied throughout their interviews and lied to the court in order to distance themselves from the murder.”
A charge of murder against Walid Ibrahim, 34 of Church Street, was dismissed during the trial.
