A Saudi Prince is facing life in jail today for brutally battering and strangling his servant to death. Saud Abdulaziz bin Nasser al Saud carried out a campaign of "sadistic" abuse against his manservant. He was today found guilty at the Old Bailey of murdering Bandar Abdulaziz in a "brutal" assault in their five-star hotel suite. The prince was fuelled by champagne and "sex on the beach" cocktails when he bit the 32-year-old hard on both cheeks during the attack in February. They had just returned from a Valentine's Day night out when al Saud launched the ferocious assault. When he was arrested he at first wrongly believed he had diplomatic immunity, but his special status as a Saudi royal could not save him from British justice. The 34-year-old, a member of one of the world's richest and most powerful dynasties, was found guilty of murder today by the jury after just one hour and 35 minutes of deliberation. Al Saud showed no reaction as the decision was announced.
