A man who attacked his neighbour with a hammer, leaving her with 59 injuries, has been convicted of murder.

Farnaz Ali, 49, was found beaten to death in the bathroom of Danny Williams’ flat in Godric Place, Norwich, after she disappeared when going for a walk.

Mr Williams, 27, who had denied murder, was found guilty by a jury at Norwich Crown Court.

He will be sentenced at the court on Friday 21st Sep.

Ms Ali had 59 injuries on her sheet-covered body when found in the flat in July 2017, the court was told.

Psychiatrist Lisa Wootton said brain damage suffered at birth had resulted in Williams’ cerebral palsy, epilepsy and learning difficulties.
