ONE of the notorious 'Scissor Sisters' killers has said she is sorry for butchering her mother's boyfriend in a frenzied attack eight years ago.

In a letter from her cell, Charlotte Mulhall also claims that only her sister, Linda, knows where the victim's decapitated head is.

She said: "I am sorry for what I have done. If I could turn back the hands of time I would have never done it."

But referring to her older sister, she says: "I hate her so much. She should have got life, not me.

"She did more than what I did that horrific night."

Mulhall and Linda were jailed in 2006 for the gruesome killing of their mother Kathleen's lover, Kenyan man Farah Swaleh Noor (38).

The pair stabbed him as many as 20 times and then butchered his body which they dumped in the Royal Canal.

They took his head, which has never been recovered, on a bus to Tallaght where they hid it in a park before it was later moved to another location.


Charlotte (28) was jailed for life for Mr Noor's murder, while Linda (37) was sentenced to 15 years for manslaughter.

In the letter, Charlotte complains that she may never get out of prison "because I don't know where Farah's head is".

"Only Linda knows that," she claims.

Linda told gardai that they killed Mr Noor because he had made sexual advances towards her.

In her letter, the details of which were published in the 'Sunday Mirror', Charlotte claims to have killed the Kenyan man because he beat their mother.
