(Newser) – A Saudi prince who beat, strangled, and bit his servant to death in a London hotel has been found guilty of murder. Prosecutors, who showed video of the prince kicking and punching the servant inside a hotel elevator, said the savage killing was linked to sex, CNN notes. The prince, who tried and failed to gain diplomatic immunity, faces a possible life sentence in a British jail, and a possible death sentence—for homosexuality, not murder—if he is deported to Saudi Arabia.
