A woman who murdered her friend and dismembered her body after she refused to have sex with her, has been jailed for life with a minimum of 23 and a half years.

 

Gareeca Gordon, 28, murdered Phoenix Netts, also 28, at the property where they both lived in Birmingham on April 16 last year.  

 

Gordon, a Jamaican national stabbed Miss Netts four times, causing fatal injuries, before cutting her body into six parts with a circular saw she bought on Gumtree for £45. 

 

Gordon admitted to killing Ms. Netts after being accused of stabbing the former student to death at the HMO property the pair shared in Lozells, West Birmingham, on 16 April.

 

The killer pleaded guilty to the murder a few days before she was due to stand trial.

 

Prosecutor Andrew Smith QC said the victim had told a friend in February that Gordon had “demanded sex with her” and became “aggressive” when she refused.

 

On 7 April, she texted a friend: “There’s a girl here who keeps asking me to be sexual. I think I’m going to move back to London. It’s scaring me lol.”

 

Bristol Crown Court heard that Gordon called the Samaritans on 11 April and appeared “tipsy”.

 

“The clear focus of the call was Ms Gordon describing that she liked another woman and wanting to have sex with her,” Mr Smith said.

 

“At one stage Ms Gordon said either that her loins were warming up or were hot.”

 

Ms Netts’ last-known contact was a phone call with a friend in the early hours of 16 April.

 

Internet searches including “how to fix punctured lung”, “internal bleeding” and “can someone recover from getting stabbed” were made on her phone between 1.04pm and 3.07pm, the court heard.

 

The victim had been stabbed four times in the front of her torso but according to a post-mortem she would have lived if she had got swift medical help.

Another woman living in the shared accommodation heard drilling and banging noises, as well as shouts of “help me, help me”, Mr Smith told the court.

 

She said Gordon had gone to ‘considerable efforts’ to dispose of the remains of Ms. Netts and to pretend she was still alive in ‘cold and calculated’ messages to her friends and family.

‘You impersonated Ms Netts in a substantial number of WhatsApp messages to her mother, including requests for money,’ the judge told Gordon.

 

‘You impersonated her in messages. You noted expressions that Ms. Netts used by listening to audio files Ms Netts had on her phone.’

 

Gordon had no previous convictions, apart from two offences of shoplifting. She had been diagnosed with a personality disorder as well as post-traumatic stress disorder.

 

Sentencing Gordon to life with a minimum term of 23 years and six months at Bristol Crown Court, judge Mrs. Justice Cutts described Miss Netts as a ‘deeply loved’ person.

 

‘Her future was looking bright, shining and promising. A fresh start was ahead of her,’ the judge told Gordon

 

‘You robbed her of that fresh start. You took her from the supportive parents who loved and cherished her.’

 

Justice Cutts told Gordon that her personality disorder may explain ‘in part’ why she killed Ms Netts but it had not “distorted” reality for her at the time.

 

Mrs Justice Cutts said: ‘Gareeca Gordon for the murder of Phoenix Netts I sentence you to life imprisonment.

 

‘You will serve a minimum term of 23 years and six months. Thereafter, it will be for the parole board to decide when, if ever, you should be released.

 

‘If you are ever released, you will remain on licence for the rest of your life.’

Nigerian singer, Chidinma Ekile has been seen in a video sharing the word of God to a bunch of carefree guys at a beer parlour in consonance with her switch from secular to gospel musician.

The Project Fame West Africa winner stunned her fans recently when she announced that she has surrendered her life to Christ for which reason she has shunned doing secular music as she transitions into the gospel kingdom. She also changed her name to Minister Chidinma to reflect her new direction.

Recall that she granted an interview to that effect saying;

“Our God is faithful, He never lies and He does whatever He says. So I’m here today, it’s been a long journey. I had an opportunity to spend time with Him, it’s a rare privilege to spend time with Him and He told me a lot of things and He said, He has been waiting for me. So, He is happy to receive me. God has been very intentional about me.

“He is very mindful of me. I’m not here because I want fame. I’ve had all of that and I think I’ve had enough of all of that. So, right now is the time to work for my father. He is the one who has called me, I did not bring myself here.

“As a matter of fact, I did not want to be here but I’m going into ministry in full force. So, most of you might not understand my ways because you don’t know where I’m coming from, and that is because a lot of time has been wasted. So, I need to catch up with time. I’m moving with time, there is no time.”

Well, sharing this new clip while preaching in the beer palour, the songstress wrote: “Street Evangelism. The other day during our street evangelism.”

During preliminary investigation, it was gathered that the London based suspect was at different times between 2004 and 2014 the vice chairman of Lagos Island East LCDA. He had also contested and lost elections for House of Representatives in 2007 and Lagos State House of Assembly in 2015.

 

Although, he claims to be an international businessman who deals in automobiles, investigation is yet to confirm that to be the source of his acquired wealth.

 

In the course of tracking him, the sum of N131million was seized from his account and another N14 million also blocked in the account of one of his traffickers, Azeez Adeniyi Ibrahim, bringing the total sum so far recovered from him to N145 million.

 

While commending the officers and men of the MMIA Command of the Agency for resilience and dedication to duty, Chairman of NDLEA, Brig. General Mohamed Buba Marwa (Retd) said with the support of all stakeholders, the problem of drug trafficking and abuse in Nigeria will be drastically reduced very soon.

 

“This arrest is yet another message and red alert to those still in this criminal trade whether as barons or traffickers that they will soon enter the dragnet of the Agency, daily being spread across the country, if they fail to back out especially now that we are moving all out for the barons and the big cartels while we continue to reign in the traffickers, Gen. Marwa stated.

The statement read.“The unanimous decision of the southern region governors in banning the open grazing by Fulani herdsmen and insistence on national dialogue have suddenly aroused and stirred up the frustrated anger and insensitivity of the northern leaders and their clueless president Muhamadu Buhari through Arewa Consultative Forum (ACF) which opposed the position of the southern region governors Forum in banning open grazing.

“The Hausa Fulani people are fearful cowards, they only depend on the indigenous people of the Middle Belt region to carry out their political, subjective domination, religious and economical wars against the southern region.

“MASSOB advises that the indigenous people of the Middle Belt region unanimously oppose every external pressure of the Fulani oligarchy to subject them as political tools of waging war against the southern region.

“The indigenous people of the Middle Belt region must join the southern region in their quest for political emancipation from the subjective domination of Fulani oligarchy,”
