Her jealous ex now wanted her life.

On his way to his basement apartment in Mississauga, Abdiljibar Mahamoud bought a knife from Square One and then in front of their two young sons, he beheaded their mother and placed her head on her chest. He eviscerated his entrails.

And then he photographed his barbaric brutality with his cell phone and practically bragged about it by uploading it to his Linkedin account with the caption: “I can’t talk about my ops (opponents). They are dead.

What kind of man would do that to the mother of his children? What kind of man would do that to someone?

His only shred of kindness was pleading guilty to second-degree murder and saving his children and Newman’s family from trial.

As relatives wiped away their tears, an emotional Superior Court Judge Bruce Durno accepted a joint submission and sentenced 29-year-old Mahamoud to an automatic life sentence without the possibility of parole for 18 years. calling femicide “savage cruelty”.

“Any domestic violence is the most serious and clear messages need to be sent,” Durno said. “Where that offense is murder, that message is amplified.”

In 2020, of the 18 homicides in Peel Region that year, police said five were related to domestic violence. Newman, 25, was one of those grim statistics.

She had lived in a common-law relationship with Mahamoud until they separated in 2018 and moved into her own apartment with their baby boys. In their victim impact statements, his family described Newman as a wonderful mother who gave exceptional care to her oldest child, who was 5 at the time and is non-verbal and autistic, and her three-year-old child. years old, who was attached to her. “like glue.”

She was loving, shy and gentle and seemed to thrive after she was finally able to leave Mahamoud. But she couldn’t really pull it off.

Newman went to court for child support, but Mahamoud evaded payments, Durno said in his judgment. He told her he would only give her money for their boys if she made an informal – and not court-ordered – deal that she would have to agree to have sex a few times a week.

“Although she did not respond to the initial suggestion, she eventually agreed to his terms,” Judge said. “It was because she needed child support money, sometimes having no money to pay for the bus to parent-teacher interviews.”

Newman was trapped.

But she told him she wanted to move on and see other people and that their deal was off when she got serious with someone else.

“Mr. Mahamoud did not accept that Brittney could see other men around the children,” he said.

And so less than 11 minutes after getting off the bus, he killed her.

Its owner heard arguments and children crying. Then he heard screaming. When no one would answer his locked door, he called 911.

Peel Regional Police arrived to find the scene gruesome, with Newman’s traumatized boys standing next to his headless body.

Mahamoud quickly confessed, explaining that he was angry that Newman reneged on their child support agreement and that he was jealous that she was seeing other men.

“You have to kill your ops (opponents),” he said.

Twice hospitalized in the past for a psychotic illness, Mahamoud told police he knew what he was doing was morally wrong, the judge said, and decided not to present a non-criminally responsible defense.

What a trail of pain this vicious killer left in his wake.

Her parentless children, the judge said, were scarred for life. The youngest son re-enacts the horrific murder again, saying his father hurt his mother and painted her red. The non-verbal child uses Google Earth to find the crime scene and collapses, sobbing inconsolably at his school.

“It’s haunting,” Durno said.

And the final indignity of this heartbreaking affair? These poor boys still haven’t gotten any help seeing a monster kill their mother – they’ve been on a waiting list for over two years.
