Daily Mail (London), May 13, 2011
A white teenage mother was stabbed repeatedly and her body dumped in a canal after she clashed with the Asian family of her lovechild, a court has heard.
Laura Wilson, 17, had a brief relationship with Ishaq Hussain, 22, who lived close to her before giving birth to their daughter in June last year.
Sheffield Crown Court was told that Hussain failed to acknowledge the child as his own and did not offer any support, leading to friction between Laura, her family and Hussain.
Laura Wilson went missing from her home in October last year and was found dead two days later
Things came to a head last October when she went to Hussain’s house and told his family he was the father of the child, prosecutor Nicholas Campbell QC said.
Hussain and his friend, who also had an affair with her and was said to be her first love, plotted to kill her, it is alleged.
They sent a flurry of text messages to one another.
They adopted the language of the cult British film ‘Four Lions’ about Islamic terrorists and mounted a ‘mission to kill Laura Wilson’, said Mr Campbell.
Asghar allegedly sent a text message to Hussain which said: ‘I’m gonna send that kaffir bitch straight to hell.’
He later told a friend that Laura and her friends had brought trouble to his door and he was ‘very angry’.
Mr Campbell said Asghar sent text messages to the friend using words to the effect of ‘I’m going to kill Laura.’
‘She was a loose cannon and they had to get rid of her,’ he said.
Hussain, of Ferham Road, Rotherham, and Ashtiaq Asghar, also from Rotherham, deny murdering Miss Wilson some time between October 8 and October 11 last year.
The teenage student went missing from her home in Holmes and her body was found two days later in a canal.
Mr Campbell told the jury: ‘The two defendants are jointly responsible for her murder.’
Her body was found in a canal in Rotherham, Yorkshire
Laura’s older sister, Sarah, looked upon Hussain as being ‘like her brother’ in the mixed ethnicity area where they lived.
Before the affair, Laura had fallen in love with Asghar and they had a sexual relationship. They resumed the affair after Laura had the baby with Hussain.
Laura struggled at school and played turant, ‘but she embraced life with gusto, she was an attractive and popular girl,’ Mr Campbell added.
Laura began drinking with Fay Williams had also had a daughter with Hussain. They knew one another before falling pregnant but then they became firm friends.
They realised Hussain would never marry either of them and Laura was only interested in Asghar.
A week before her death, Asghar taunted Laura about a drunken telephone call she had, increasing tensions.
When Hussain started taking his responsibilities to the daughter he had with Miss Williams, Laura and Sarah Wilson took exception and arranged a meeting with Hussain who claimed he was not the father of her baby and blamed Asghar.
Hussain began to panic according to a bystander and grabbed Laura and shook her violently shouting: ‘Don’t tell my family.’
Mr Campbell said Hussain continued to ignore the daughter as his.
‘Laura Wilson wasn’t seeking a relationship being in love with Asghar she was seeking some support for her daughter.’
Hussain later told police his family knew about his child with Fay Williams but he was trying to keep the other baby’s existence secret.
He was also annoyed that Laura had threatened to ‘grass’ him to his family. Laura then took matters in to her own hands and went to see the Asghar and Hussain families to tell all.
Laura told Asghar’s mother she loved her son and ‘wanted to have babies’ by him but the mother became angry and hit Laura with a shoe.
She said he would never have a baby with a white girl and called her ‘a dirty white bitch who opens her legs.’ Laura then saw Hussains’s family and told them she had give birth to his baby.
‘Her actions that night brought the truth to both of their front doors,’ said Mr Campbell.
After that Hussain and Asghar spent more and more time together. Text messages recovered later showed they even talked about getting a gun.
In the language of the film Asghar said: ‘I will make a show and make some beans on toast’–a reference to the carnage after a bomb blast, said Mr Campbell.
It was clear the references to ‘unbelieving kaffir b*****ds’ referred to the ‘mission’ to kill Laura. The hearing continues.
