A convicted killer, who to came to Britain from Moldova after serving 10 years for murdering his girlfriend, has been found guilty of the ‘evil and depraved’ rape and attempted murder of a stranger who he left for dead in an alleyway.
Moldovan national Sergiu Boianjiu, 38, was found guilty of attempted murder and rape today at Northampton Crown Court.
Boianjiu, who lived in Wellingborough, Northamptonshire, was caught on CCTV camera in February after he raped a young woman before repeatedly stamping his head on her.
Footage recovered by police also showed Boianjiu, who thought he had killed the victim, leaving the scene to fetch a wheelie bin in which he tried to hide her apparently lifeless body.

The images also showed the badly-injured woman – who Boianjiu wanted to ‘eliminate’ as a potential witness – being discovered by a passer-by after several hours lying in the rain and cold.
The two-week trial was told that the woman was attacked near a church as she walked home from a night-out in Wellingborough at around 5am.
She was subjected to a 40-minute ordeal, suffering a life-threatening brain injury, and could remember nothing of being attacked in what prosecutors described as acts of ‘desolating wickedness’.
The criminal came to the UK after serving 10 years behind bars for the murder of his girlfriend in 2002.
It emerged during the trial that the heavily-built construction worker was convicted of theft from a school and ‘deliberate murder’ at Moldova’s Riscani district court on October 9 2009.

Adjourning the case, Judge David Herbert QC told Boianjiu: ‘I will have to consider the imposition of a life sentence in your case given the seriousness of the offences you have been convicted of, and your previous conviction for murder.
‘I need to reflect on the appropriate sentence in your case and the defence want to prepare their submissions ready for your mitigation.
‘In the meantime, you will be remanded in custody.’
He will remain in custody while he waits to be sentenced within the next six weeks.
