Bulgarian national Deyan Deyanov, who committed the shocking murder of 60-year-old Jennifer Mills-Westley in Tenerife back in 2011, has been sentenced to 20 years in a psychiatric unit.
Deyanov's defence had argued that he was not criminally responsible for his actions due to paranoid schizophrenia, but he was found guilty by a jury of nine last week.
When asked by the magistrate if he had anything he wanted to say, Deyanov answered through his interpreter: "I am the second reincarnation of Jesus Christ and I will bring the fire of the Holy Spirit to bear against this court," according to Sky News.
Deyanov killed 60-year-old Jennifer Mills-Westley in a shop in the popular resort of Los Cristianos back in May 2011. He stabbed her 14 times before decapitating her in public.
The mentally ill man had pursued the victim for some time before the horrifying act.
