A burglar, Kasim Khuram has been sentenced to six years in jail after breaking into a funeral parlour to have sex with a corpse.
23-year-old Kasim Khuram, had sex with a woman’s body after lifting the lids of coffins at the Co-Operative undertakers in Walsall Road, Great Barr, Birmingham back in November.
Sentencing at Birmingham Crown Court, Judge Melbourne Inman QC said the crimes
“offend all human sensitivity. I am not aware of and nor have I been able to find any similar case. It would be difficult to think of a greater depravation of the dignity of the dead,” he said.
Kasim Khuram had forced his way into the funeral parlour at about 03:00 GMT while high on Mamba and PCP and after drinking vodka. He disturbed “multiple coffins” and desecrated the bodies of two women.
Khuram, who previously admitted sexual penetration of a body and burglary, was also ordered to register as a sex offender for 10 years.
