A FATHER-OF-THREE who killed a prostitute after suffering a messed up penis enhancement operation has actually been imprisoned for life.
Michael Wenham, 36, was told he might never be released after he was convicted of the “vicious” attack on young prostitute Karolina Nowikiewicz.
The married IT consultant screwed his eyes shut and wept as he was told he will serve at least 26 years behind bars for the sickening killing.
During an 8-day trial, the jury heard how Wenham hired sick to work and went to a nearby DIY store to buy disposable gloves, plastic sacks and a Stanley knife before organizing to satisfy a young sex worker at her flat in Slough in Berkshire.
He asked her to undress and get on all fours on the bed, before he hacked at her neck with such force that he almost decapitated her, the jury of seven men and five women heard.
He then showered himself clean, left her body on the bed and went outside where he called the cops and his other half to confess.
The attack came simply months after self-conscious Wenham flew to Philadelphia to have a 315,000 operation making his penis larger.
Extraordinary information about his sexual dreams were exposed to the court, as the jury heard how the bisexual once described his “best ever” sexual experience as an encounter with a hermaphrodite prostitute.
The father-of-three likewise viewed large quantities of severe porn and paid to be humiliated by a dominatrix who spruced up in business clothing and claimed to be his manager.
His other half of eight years, Dawn, told the court that her partner had actually fantasized about her having sex with better-endowed males and that he had taken her to a swinger’s celebration.
The 34-year-old told how Wenham would ask her to ridicule him because of the size of his penis and would spruce up in women’s clothing.
However, the jury heard the messed up operation had really reduced his penis from 5 to 3 inches, triggering a second trip to America last January for additional treatment.
An expert psychologist informed the court he believed that Wenham’s overactive libido had actually been changed into a homicidal rage because he was not able to please his sexual desires following the failed operation.
Dr Richard Taylor also said sexually disappointed Wenham might have been inspired by the plot of violent American scary film Hostel when he performed the harsh killing. The killing carefully appeared like the climax to the film, in which a group of American backpackers are lured into an eastern European hotel and tortured.
In the gruesome last scene, one of the characters is beheaded from behind in a crazy attack.
Sentencing him at Reading Crown Court today, Judge John Reddihough stated: “You chose a woman of the street for your victim because she was a simple target.
“However, in my judgement you must have carried out this dreadful murder in order to get some sadistic enjoyment or fulfillment from it.”
Wenham admitted manslaughter on the grounds of lessened responsibility but denied murdering the call woman. However, the jury unanimously discovered him guilty of the 25-year-old Polish student’s murder following a trial at Reading Crown Court.
Safeguarding Wenham, Pavlos Panayi QC said the father-of-three had revealed authentic remorse for his actions, attempting to compose a letter to Karolina’s household to apologize for the murder. He said the solicitors had actually not passed the letter on to spare the young prostitute’s family even more suffering.
“This is a male who has acted in such a way throughout his life that makes this utterly stunning to all those who enjoy him. The question why a man in his position with this background, without any history of violence, would commit and offence as dreadful, as terrible, as ruthless as this has actually been tough to comprehend.”
