Lesbian killers jailed for life

TWO young lesbians who killed a teenage girl, kissed over her body and dumped it in a wheelie bin will each spend at least 24 years in jail.

The pair bludgeoned 16-year-old Stacey Mitchell with a concrete block, strangled her with a chain and then videoed her blood-splattered bedroom and semi-naked body.

Jessica Ellen Stasinowsky, 21, and girlfriend Valerie Paige Parashumti, 19, were today sentenced in the West Australian Supreme Court to life in prison after pleading guilty to Stacey's wilful murder at a Perth house in December, 2006. Neither will be eligible for parole until 2032.

Justice Peter Blaxell said: "You have each had more than a year in custody to reflect upon the evilness of your crime, yet you still lack remorse and obviously place no value on the sanctity of human life.

"There is also the added problem that you each enjoy being sexually aroused by the infliction of violence."

During sentencing submissions in January, prosecutor David Dempster told the court that Parashumti and Stasinowsky had killed Stacey, who they had known for three days, because she had been annoying them.

Parashumti's lawyer, David Edwardson, QC, said his client was partly motivated by a desire to dispel Stasinowsky's jealousy about Stacey, who had walked around the house dressed only in a bikini.

The girls attacked Stacey at their home after giving her alcohol containing a sleeping pill.

Parashumti repeatedly bashed Stacey on the head with a concrete block as the teenager tried to flee.

Because Stacey was taking a long time to die, Stasinowksy then wrapped a belt chain around her neck. After she died, the pair kissed each other over the body.

They then dumped Stacey's body head first in a wheelie bin behind the house, where it was found by police several days later.

Another occupant of the shared house, 27-year-old David Haynes, was sentenced to two years jail last year after pleading guilty to being an accessary after the fact to the murder. He was released on parole on February 15.
