Wife killer gets life sentence
A man who murdered his wife after taking an hallucinogenic drug has been jailed for life at the Old Bailey.

Omar Saleh, 32, killed Hodan, 24, who was found with stab wounds, including a fatal one to her neck, at their home in Stoke Newington, north London.

The attack happened after Saleh chewed khat - a plant popular in Africa and the Middle East, which causes hallucinations and paranoia.

Saleh was told he would serve a minimum of 13 years.
