‘You disarticulated her arms at the shoulder, her upper legs from her pelvis, and her lower legs from the knees.
‘With the exception of her left lower leg and her kneecaps, you wrapped all her limbs in black plastic bin liners and dumped them unceremoniously in the waste bins behind the restaurant in anticipation of them being removed by council refuse collectors.
‘Her lower left leg and kneecaps have never been recovered.
‘Then on September 8, you placed her torso and head in a large plastic holdall and took it by taxi to Tinpit Hill on the outskirts of the city where you buried it beneath bracken and branches.’
He added: ‘Exactly what happened will never be known but something happened in your bedroom which caused you to decide to kill Lorraine Cox.
The court heard Lorraine was last seen in September last year while walking home from a night out
‘You ended the life of a bright, vivacious and intelligent young woman who had her whole life ahead of her.
‘Your cowardice in failing to report her death only served to compound the loss and hurt.’
The court heard Ms Cox was last seen in September last year while walking home from a night out.
Her family did not know her whereabouts for about a week before Mangori was arrested by detectives.
The trial heard Mangori had a ‘morbid interest in amputation’ and days before and after the murder had looked at images relating to the subject.
He also looked at videos of people with amputations, deformities, and a woman’s leg with cramp.
After the murder he bought items to dispose of her body, including a trowel after viewing a website entitled: ‘How to dig a grave by hand.’
He left her body in his room for several days before wrapping her in clingfilm, bin liners and tape, claiming that she died suddenly after sex in his bedroom after drinking and taking drugs.
Mangori was convicted of murder and had previously admitted a separate charge of preventing Ms Cox’s lawful burial.
