A British court sentenced a Saudi prince Wednesday to the maximum penalty of life in prison for murdering his servant.
Prince Saud Abdulaziz Bin Nasser Al Saud was found guilty Tuesday of both murder and grievous bodily harm in the February killing of Bandar Abdulaziz.
Abdulaziz died after a severe beating left him with swelling and bruising of the brain and fractured ribs and neck. He also had bite marks on his face, ears and arm.
The prince had not denied killing Abdulaziz, but said he had not intended to do so. He did not take the stand in his own defense.
