A man who shot dead his heavily pregnant ex-wife with a crossbow has been found guilty of murder.
Sana Muhammad was shot through the abdomen by Ramanodge Unmathallegadoo at her home in Ilford, east London, on 12 November 2018.
He hid in a shed in his ex-partner’s garden armed with two crossbows, bolts, a knife, duct tape, cable ties and a hammer, the Old Bailey heard.
Mrs Muhammad’s son survived after being delivered by Caesarean section.
The court heard the couple’s relationship ended in 2012 after an incident which led to her jumping out of an upstairs window.
At a trial in 2013, a judge directed jurors to acquit Unmathallegadoo of attempted strangulation.
The mother-of-five then successfully filed for an emergency non-molestation order which barred the defendant from coming within 100 metres of the family home.
The order was still in place at the time of her attack.
