Churchgoer guilty of murdering midwifery student

A 40-year-old man has been jailed for life, with a minimum term of 17 years, for the murder of a student midwife who attended his church.

Shohfah-El Israel was found guilty of killing 20-year-old Joy Morgan, whose body has never been found.

The judge condemned his “cruel and cowardly” refusal to reveal her whereabouts, saying it had caused yet more suffering and distress to her family.
