His jealous ex now wanted his life.

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

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

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

His one shred of kindness was to plead guilty to second-degree murder and save his children and Newman’s family from prosecution.

We’re sorry, but this video could not be loaded.

As family members wiped away tears, an emotional Superior Court Judge, Bruce Durno, agreed to a joint submission and sentenced Mahamoud, 29, to an automatic life sentence without parole for 18 years, calling the femicide “savage cruelty”

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

In 2020, of the 18 homicides in the Peel region that year, police said five were related to intimate partner violence. Newman, 25, was one of those grim stats.

She had lived in a common-law relationship with Mahamoud until they separated in 2018 and moved into their own apartment with their young children. In their victim impact statements, her family described Newman as an excellent mother who provided exceptional care to her oldest son, who was 5 years old at the time and is nonverbal and autistic, and to her three-year-old son, who was attached to her “like glue.”

She was loving, shy and gentle and seemed to flourish after she was finally able to leave Mahamoud. But she really couldn’t escape.

Newman went to court to get child support, but Mahamoud evaded payments, Durno said at his sentencing. He told her that she would give him money for her children only if she entered into an informal agreement, and not a court-ordered one: she would have to agree to have sex a few times a week.

“While she did not respond to the initial suggestion, she ultimately agreed to his terms,” ​​the judge said. “That was because she needed money for child support, she sometimes didn’t have money for bus fare for parent-teacher interviews.”

Newman was trapped.

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

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

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

His landlord heard an argument and the crying of the children. Then he heard screams. When no one answered his closed door, he called 911.

We’re sorry, but this video could not be loaded.

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

Mahamoud quickly confessed, explaining that he was angry that Newman had breached his child support agreement and was jealous that she was seeing other men.

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

Hospitalized twice in the past for a psychotic illness, Mahamoud told police he knew what he was doing was morally wrong, the judge said, choosing not to present a defense that was not criminally responsible.

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

Their fatherless children, the judge said, have been scarred for life. The youngest son still recreates the horrible murder, saying that her father hurt her mother and painted her red. The nonverbal boy uses Google Earth to find the crime scene and collapses, sobbing uncontrollably at his school.

“It’s disturbing,” Durno said.

And the final indignity of this harrowing case? Those poor kids still haven’t been helped to deal with witnessing a monster kill their mother; they have been on a waiting list for over two years.
