A burglar who had sex with a corpse after breaking into a funeral parlour has been jailed for six years. Kasim Khuram, 23, 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.
Khuram had forced his way into the 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.
