Stafford Manahan, 43, of Northwood Road in Thornton Heath, tortured a man from Penge with boiling water as he wanted to steal his Universal Credit money.

Manahan abused his friendship with a vulnerable man by getting him drunk then threatening to pour boiling water over him unless he told him his PIN number. 

When the victim refused, Manahan carried out the threat multiple times. 

The man, who had suffered severe burns to 55 per cent of his body, wasn’t found for three days because he was unable to walk due to his burns and Manahan had taken his phone. 

He spent the next three months in hospital.

Manahan had denied both charges but after a five-day trial a jury took just over two hours to find him guilty. 

A judge sentenced Manahan to 13 years in prison, saying: “You showed absolutely not one jot of remorse for your appalling conduct.”

Police found the bodies of Ms Drummonds, 27, her mother Tanysha Ofori-Akuffo, 45, grandmother Dolet Hill, 64, and Ms Hill’s partner, Denton Burke, 58, after being alerted to a disturbance by a neighbour.

Armed officers discovered Jacques naked and lying in the upstairs bathroom in a praying position, screaming “Allah, take me!”, “Kill me now”, “Get rid of me”, and “God please forgive me”.  

Later, at Lewisham Hospital, Jacques said: “I ain’t even in the wrong, I did them for sacrifice”, and also warned: “I will do something stupid again.”  

He admitted manslaughter but denied murder on the basis that he was mentally unwell at the time.  

An Old Bailey jury deliberated for two hours to find Jacques guilty of four counts of murder. 

He was jailed for life with a minimum term of 46 years on March 1.

Luke Jackson, 28, of Shoreham Close in Croydon, Billy Harrison, 30, of Tollers Lane in Coulsdon, Perry Lovejoy, 29, from Horley, and Harry Sales, 28, of Cornwall Road in Croydon were all jailed for their roles in the thefts.

Officers discovered that the gang used the ‘relay attack’ technique to target keyless luxury vehicles including Rolls Royces, Bentleys, Land Rovers, Range Rovers and Alfa Romeos. 

The method involves using a master device to copy the signal of a vehicle's key and transmitting it to a second smaller device, which replicates the key and unlocks the car. 

Perry Lovejoy was sentenced to three years in prison and handed a nine-month consecutive sentence for admitting being concerned in the supply of cannabis, after officers found incriminating messages on his phone. 

Harrison and Sales were locked up for three years each.
