This thug who butchered his ex-wife to death by stabbing her 43 times before posting a snap of her bloodied corpse on social media – clocking up 24 likes – has been jailed for 10 years.
The man, an Iraqi migrant living in Germany, posted the sick images and even received 24 likes before they were removed from Instagram, according to the police.
Nibras Hussein, 31, has been found guilty of manslaughter and given 10 years in jail by a court in Dortmund, a city in the western German state of North Rhine-Westphalia. Prosecutors are believed to have charged Hussein with manslaughter rather than murder as they could not prove the killing was premeditated.

In court, Hussein confessed that he had killed his estranged Yazidi ex-wife Tschiman Fattah, but said that he could not remember any details of it.
He said in court: “We had a fight, she called me a son of a b*tch. Then she took a knife and spat at me.
According to Hussein, his ex-wife insulted him by saying he “had no balls, only debts”.
He said: “I wanted to leave before, but then I turned around. I do not know what happened then.”
According to chief prosecutor Carsten Dombert, who demanded Hussein be locked up for 12 years on manslaughter charges, the accused “suffered from delusional, unfounded jealousy”.
Local media reported that Hussein and Tschiman experienced constant marital strife, with Hussein receiving a restraining order from the district court after he beat and insulted the mother of his two children aged seven and four.

However, he disregarded the restraining order when he visited Tschiman on the day of her death in October last year.
The presiding judge said during sentencing: “He took the mother away from the children.”
The judge added that while it was unclear what had caused them to argue, “the result was that he stabbed her 43 times with a knife, three stabs went directly into the heart.”
The judge said that later in the evening, Hussein reported himself to the police, telling them that he had killed his ex-wife.
The victim’s brother Karwan, 25, spoke of his sister’s troubled relationship with her ex-husband.
The couple met in Germany almost 10 years ago and according to Karwan “everything went swimmingly at first”.
However, the relationship deteriorated as the suspect’s security company went bankrupt and he had to work as a waiter and cleaner to make ends meet. Hussein was also said to be very jealous.
Karwan added: “He constantly hounded her, threatened her. My sister didn’t want to just cook and clean at home. She dreamed of having her own hair salon.”
In his final statement in court, Hussein directly addressed the relatives of Tschiman.
He said: “I want to explicitly apologise to the family of my dead wife. I loved her above all else and I know how much her parents suffer from it. I’m suffering too. I ruined my life and that of my children.”
