He, along with ringleader Mohammed Emwazi, known as Jihadi John, and El Shafee Elsheikh were responsible for the brutal killings of several Western hostages, including Alan Henning and David Haines.

The 38-year-old showed no emotion as Judge Thomas Selby Ellis handed his verdict down at Alexandria District Court, Virginia, as Kotey’s family watched on from the public gallery.

He was given a life sentence for each of the eight counts he pled guilty to and are being run concurrently.

Judge Ellis described Kotey’s actions as “egregious, violent and inhumane”

Speaking of Kotey’s victims, the judge said: “These were not prisoners of war, these weren’t soldiers in the field… they were soldiers for good.”
