X-Factor finalist’s brother jailed for murder after stabbing

9 Mar , 2009  

The brother of X-Factor finalist Rachel Hylton has been jailed for life for murdering a student in an attack of “horrifying and merciless ferocity”.

Khryie Hylton, 17, from Hackney, admitted stabbing 20-year-old Yusufo Miiro nine times in the head and chest last July in an east London towerblock.

An Old Bailey jury heard how Hylton was seized with jealousy when he found out Mr Miiro, a promising criminology student, had been seeing his former girlfriend, 18-year-old Rochelle Sinclair.
