Brutal killing of a teenager because he
Victim ... Kristy Bamu
THE brutal killing of a teenager accused of witchcraft was triggered because he wet himself, a court heard.
Kristy Bamu, 15, suffered 101 injuries before he drowned in a bathtub.
His sister Magalie and brother-in-law Erik Bikubi attacked him after he tried to hide his wet pants in their kitchen, it was alleged.
Kristy's other sister Kelly, 21, told the Old Bailey: "That's what triggered everything."
She said the couple, both 28, said the wet pants "were bewitched".
Kristy, Kelly, another sister and two brothers, born in France of Congolese parents, were visiting Magalie and Bikubi in Newham, East London.
Kelly said the couple accused them of native "kindoki" sorcery. Kristy was allegedly attacked with sticks, knives, a metal bar, hammer and chisel. Magalie and Bikubi deny murder. Trial continues.
