LONDON:A Tunisian man who had been charged with the murder of Indian-origin student Sabita Thanwani at her university accommodation in the Clerkenwell area of north London in March last year has admitted to her killing in court.

Maher Maaroufe, 23, pleaded guilty to manslaughter by reason of diminished responsibility during a hearing at the Old Bailey court on Friday and will be sentenced in September.
The court heard how Thanwani, 19, was found under the sheets with a cut to her throat on March 19 last year. According to court reports, the prosecution described how Maaroufe and Thanwani had been in a relationship prior to the morning of the killing.

They were at the student accommodation when a neighbour overheard screams and called emergency services.
