Fugitive gang member jailed for killing officer

Mustaf Jama, 29, was told he must serve at least 35 years for the murder of Sharon Beshenivsky.

Jama was in a gang that gunned down the mother-of-three and wounded her colleague, PC Teresa Milburn, in Bradford in November 2005. The judge, Mr Justice Openshaw, said Jama was one of a “team of ruthless and dangerous men”. He was convicted at Newcastle Crown Court following a re-trial after a jury failed to reach a verdict in January.

Jama fled to Somalia using a friend’s passport but was brought back to face justice in 2007.

PC Beshenivsky, 38, was killed as she responded to an incident in which the robbers escaped with little more than £5,000.

The ringleader, Muzzaker Shah, and Jama’s brother, Yusuf, were caught soon afterwards and both jailed for life with a minimum tariff of 35 years.
