A “wicked” predator who attacked a popular barmaid in a park has pleaded guilty to a second sexually-motivated murder.
Kasim Lewis, 32, was jailed for life with a minimum term of 29 years last May for the murder of 22-year-old Iuliana Tudos on Christmas Eve 2017.
Her naked body was found, with a suspected Batman logo carved into her chest, in a burned-out hut in the park three days after she disappeared
Following his conviction for her murder, Lewis’s DNA was linked to the death of Catherine Burke, who was stabbed to death in her own home in Haringey a month before.
At a hearing at the Old Bailey on Monday, Lewis pleaded guilty to the murder of Ms Burke on November 16 2017.
The 55-year-old mother of one and retired civil servant was found dead by police after concerned neighbours raised the alarm.
Police found DNA linking the defendant to the scene and tracked Ms Burke’s mobile phone in the direction of where he was living.
