All Myanmar Youths
This sickening footage shows two monsters who tortured and murdered a "beautiful" mum-of-two smirking as they show off a gun, a chainsaw and a cannabis farm.
In one twisted clip, released by police today, killer William McFall can be seen brandishing a handgun while pulling facial expressions and bragging about the deadly weapon.
He can later be seen showing off a cannabis farm alongside fellow murderer Stephen Unwin, with one of the pair saying through laughter: "You want to see my friends?"
And in a chilling still image, McFall - who met Unwin in prison after they were both locked up for previous murders - grins as he poses with a gun and a massive chainsaw.
The footage, taken from Unwin and McFall's phones, was released by Northumbria Police this afternoon after the pair were convicted of 28-year-old Quyen Ngoc Nguyen's murder.
A judge had allowed it to be viewed by jurors during the maintenance men's trial at Newcastle Crown Court to show the previous bad character of both of the defendants.
Unwin, 40, and McFall, 51, put Miss Nguyen through an unimaginable four-hour ordeal after she was lured to Unwin's home in Shiney Row, Tyne and Wear, last summer.
Miss Nguyen, who weighed just 7st and was a "loving" mum to two young kids, was raped by Unwin and forced to hand over her PINs before her body was dumped in a burning car.
The jury heard how her killers ate a curry they had cooked as she lay dying in the house.
The young Vietnamese woman's badly burned body was later discovered in the back of her Audi by firefighters after it had been torched beside some allotments in August 2017.
But despite the horrific nature of the attack, McFall was seemingly so unmoved by his victim's suffering that he happily snapped a selfie while travelling to a post office after the killing.
In a sick image, also released today, he can be seen sitting in a vehicle's passenger seat as he and Unwin drive to Fencehouse Post Office - where they withdrew cash from Miss Nguyen's bank account.
Unwin is pictured in the background, not looking at the camera.
The two pals were today found guilty of Miss Nguyen's murder by the jury of eight women and four men, who deliberated for just four hours before reaching their verdicts.
They had both denied the charge. Unwin was convicted of the victim's murder and her rape, while McFall was found guilty of her murder but cleared of the rape charge.
This afternoon, Miss Nguyen's grieving sister, Quyhn Ngoc Nguyen, wept in the public gallery, holding a framed photo of her sibling, as she waited for the verdicts.
The victim worked at her sister's nail bar, but was also helping Vietnamese people find accommodation when she came across Unwin. He worked for landlords maintaining properties, and the mum would not have known he was a life prisoner out on licence for murder.
During the earlier killing in 1998, Unwin murdered a pensioner.
Tellingly, he also set fire to the elderly victim's house in a bid to cover his tracks.
McFall, who is from Northern Ireland, also murdered a pensioner during a 1996 break-in.
The killers met in the prison system at HMP Swaleside, a Category B institution, in Kent and later got in touch via Facebook after they were both released on licence, the court heard.
They teamed up, working together legitimately, but also stealing cannabis from farms they found in local properties, it was said.
They planned their depraved attack on Miss Nguyen, with Unwin tricking her into coming into his home in Houghton-le-Spring. There, McFall was waiting.
The Irishman had texted Unwin earlier that evening using a vile racial slur, saying: "We raping the ch***"?" the court heard.
Before she was sexually assaulted, raped and killed in the horrifying attack, the mum had been forced to hand over her PINs.
The court was told how Unwin and McFall messaged loved ones and ate the curry they had cooked as their victim lay dying in the house.
Unwin withdrew £1,000 from her bank accounts at cashpoints that night. Each of the defendants had blamed the other, seemingly hoping to confuse the jury.
McFall wrote to Unwin while they were on remand saying he had been to the prison library and found a "legal loophole" despite what he admitted was damning evidence.
The prosecution claimed their loophole was simply to blame one another.
In a statement today, following the pair's conviction, Miss Nguyen's heartbroken sister described the victim as a "loving", "caring" and "beautiful" mum.
She also said it had been "unbelievably difficult" to hear the "lies" the defendants had said about her sibling in an attempt to clear their own names".
Her statement, released via police today read: "Quyen was a loving caring mother and a simply beautiful daughter, sister and aunt who loved nothing more than spending time with her family.
"She had many friends both Vietnam and in the UK. My sister has two beautiful young children whose lives have been changed forever, they will never see there mummy again which has left us all deeply saddened and hurt.
"My parents will never understand why she has been taken from them in this violent way, they always believed she would be safe in this country.
"She was their youngest child, a kind, generous, thoughtful and intelligent young women.
"We have all been left devastated by her death, our family has lost a wonderful women, we cannot even begin to describe the loss and emptiness in our hearts, her smile will be missed every day by everyone who knew her.
"Quyen was a talented loving and beautiful young woman who had the opportunity for a wonderful life; she had educated herself in London to degree standard, taught herself to learn the English language well and dreamed of a good life for her and her children.
"It has been unbelievably difficult for her family and friends to listen to the lies these two men have said about her in an attempt to clear their own names.
"She was not involved in any criminality nor was she ever in a relationship with Mr Unwin. The thought and knowledge of what Quyen must have suffered at the time of her death is unbearable.
"Although nothing will bring her back to us I accept the sentence imposed by the court and hope these individuals will never be released."
Miss Nguyen, who was originally from Vinh, a city in the north of Vietnam, moved to the UK in 2010 to study business in London.
Her burned body was found in the back of her car on August 15, 2017.
Unwin and McFall have been warned they face a whole-life term for the brutal killing.
David Hines, founder of the National Victims' Association, said today: "A life sentence should mean a minimum of 40 years behind bars."
McFall made a series of outbursts from the dock this afternoon, while Unwin kept his head bowed after the jury convicted him following their deliberations.
Mr Justice Morris said mandatory life sentences will follow and he warned the defendants they may be never be released. He will set their minimum term at a hearing next month.
In a statement today, the Ministry of Justice (MOJ) said fewer than one in 200 prisoners out on licence go on to commit a serious offence.
A spokesman said: "This was a truly heinous crime and our sincere condolences remain with Miss Nguyen's family and friends.
"Serious further offences are very rare - but each one is taken extremely seriously and investigated fully so we identify any necessary actions when managing other cases."
The MOJ said McFall and Unwin were not known to be associates.
It said people on "life licence" were monitored according to the risks they posed and "how long they have been on licence without cause for concern".
Detective Inspector Ed Small, who was part of the investigation team, said today that the case was one of the worst he has had to investigate in his entire career.
Det Insp Small, of Northumbria Police, said: “This was one of the most horrific cases that I have had to investigate in my 25 years working as a police officer.
“William John McFall and Stephen Unwin had a history of targeting vulnerable people for personal gain and that is exactly what they did on this occasion."
He described how Miss Nguyen had been lured to the house and held for four hours, during which time she was sexually assaulted, rape and murdered.
“I can’t even begin to imagine how she would have felt in those last few hours and these two individuals deserve to spend the rest of their lives behind bars," he said.
“They are both violent men who lack any form of compassion. They are arrogant, greedy and have shown no remorse from the moment they were brought into police custody.
“To put Quyen’s family through the ordeal of a trial despite the mountain of evidence against them typifies what kind of people they are.
“I have nothing but admiration for Quyen’s family and particularly her sister Quynh who has sat in court throughout the proceedings so she could look both these men in the eye.
“Nothing will bring Quyen back to her family or her two children but these men now face the rest of their lives behind bars.
"I hope that gives them some form of justice.”
