Life for Hannah Foster's murderer Maninder Pal Singh Kohli
MANINDER PAL Singh Kohli has been sentenced to life for the murder, rape, abduction and false imprisonment of Hannah.
The Mr Justice Keith at Winchester Crown Court ordered that he serve a minimum of 24 years for his brutal crimes.
The court also heard a family impact statement from Hannah Foster’s mum that was read by Hannah’s aunt Gill Lewis.
It took jurors a day to find Kohli, 41, guilty of all charges.
As the verdicts were read out he nodded his head while sobbing was heard from the public gallery.

A-level student Hannah, who was set to become a doctor, was snatched from the street as she walked home from a night out with friends in March 2003.
Kohli grabbed her as she walked the final few yards to her house on Grosvenor Road in Portswood before bundling her into his van that he used to deliver sandwiches for a company in Empress Road, Southampton.
Her body was found at the side of Allington Lane, West End, two days later.
