A Blackheath teen made a blood pact with the devil, swearing to sacrifice six women every six months and “build a temple” in exchange for a lottery win, a court heard.

Danyal Hussein, 19, of Guy Barnett Grove, is on trial at the Old Bailey accused of repeatedly stabbing Nicole Smallman, 27, and Bibaa Henry, 46, in a Wembley park in the early hours of June 6 last year.

The women’s bodies were found by friends intertwined and concealed in a hedgerow the next day.

Police allegedly uncovered a handwritten note in Hussein’s home purporting to make a bargain with a demon to “sacrifice” six women in six months in exchange for winning the jackpot.

It was allegedly signed in the defendant’s own blood.

The note, which was read in court, stated: “Agreement for the Lucifuge Rofocale.

“Perform a minimum of six sacrifices every six months for as long as I am free and physically capable.

“Sacrifice only women. Build a temple for you. Do everything that I have promised.

“For me, win the Mega Millions Super Jackpot, to receive fruitful rewards in return for the future sacrifices I make to you.

“The rewards could consist of wealth and power.

“To never be suspected of any crimes by the police and also that the police will never know of any crimes that I have done and that I will do.

“Signed by, Me Danyal.”

Three lottery tickets were folded up inside the agreement with the demon, Prosecutor Oliver Glasgow said.

He added: “His plan could not be clearer – to sacrifice women in exchange for personal profit and never be suspected of having done anything wrong.”

The day after the killings, Hussein allegedly spent £17.50 on 10 Mega Millions bets and two Mega Millions syndicate bets, having set up an account in advance.

But Mr Glasgow said: “He did not win any money with any of these ticket and since he is now in the dock on trial for murder it would appear that his plan to kill women, win the lottery and get away with his crimes has been an abject failure.”

The victims’ mother Mina Smallman and other family members sat in court as Mr Glasgow set out the prosecution case on Wednesday.

The court heard that a combination of forensic evidence and CCTV footage led police to Hussein.

His DNA was at the scene, on the bodies of the victims and on a bloodstained knife found nearby, it was alleged.

In addition, he had allegedly bought a set of knives in Asda and a full face mask and shovels on Amazon.

The day after the killing, Hussein went to hospital with cuts to his hand from a knife, claiming he had been attacked by a group of boys, jurors heard.

The court was told Hussein did not accept it was him in CCTV footage or that any of the blood and DNA evidence was found because he had been present at the scene or taken part in the violence.

Hussein has denied double murder and possessing a knife.

The trial before Mrs Justice Whipple was adjourned until Thursday.
