Mother of two stabbed to death, murderer Adan sentenced for life
BRISTOL: A murderer and estranged husband Adan Dahir has been sentenced for life. Asiyah Harris, 27,was stabbed in the neck three times by Adan Dahir, 38,at the home they had shared in St Pauls, Bristol. As the mother-of-two died, she could be heard screaming: ‘Adan stop, leave me alone, get off me! Please, please Adan I love you, drop the knife please!’ Adan Dahir has now been jailed for life.
According to a Daily Mail report, another witness told the court he heard the mother-of two saying: ‘Don’t kill me, I love you.’ The shocking attack was seen from the street by passersby as the former couple grappled in front of a window at the home they had shared.
Before the murder, police had been called to reports of a fight at the house, on August 21 at about 11pm. Dahir spoke to police through a window and said there had been a fight between his exwife and sister. Ms Harris had confirmed the story, and the matter was thought to be sorted with police leaving the address.
But just after midnight on August 22, neighbours heard more shouting. When officers returned to the scene they found Ms Harris lying in a pool of her own blood on the living room floor. She had suffered stab injuries to the neck, one to each side, and one of them had severed an artery. Paramedics were called but she was declared dead at the scene, and Dahir suggested to police she had caused the injuries to herself. He was arrested and inter – viewed, but Dahir claimed that his estranged brought the knife into the room and was trying to hit him with it.
