A 21-year-old Hanna Bennis has been charged to court for the murder of her 58-year-old mother, Aziza Bennis, whom she stabbed more than 30 times in their West London residence. 

Daily Mail reports that Hanna filmed a blood-stained knife and the ‘murder’ scene on her phone after the incident.

Hanna has been charged with murder of her mother, Aziza, a 58-year-old dinner lady at a house in West London.

According to reports, police forced their way into the property, which is located at Boddington Gardens, Ealing, following reports of screaming at about 3:40pm Monday.

Aziza sustained multiple stab wounds, with fatal injury to her right thigh. A post-mortem examination confirmed the cause of her death was as a result of multiple stab injuries.

Hanna was arrested and charged with murder on Wednesday.

She appeared in court at HMP Bronzefield Friday confirming her identity while Judge Philip Katz set a timetable for the case.

Prosecution counsel, Joel Smith, said Hanna was involved in a “volatile relationship” with her late mother.

The trial judge set a plea hearing for November 4. 

Hanna was remanded in custody ahead of the plea hearing and fixed her trial for July 31, 2023.
