A FORMER child model was jailed for 25 years after kicking a doctor to death for money to pay a prostitute.
Thomas Connor, 20, of Curtismill Way, Orpington, attacked Nadim Gulamhuseinwala, 32, with a five-foot iron railing in a park near Buckingham Palace.
The victim, who was a member of the Royal College of Surgeons but worked for City firm McKinsey at the time of his death, was on the phone to his girlfriend when he was knocked out.
CCTV cameras recorded Connor stamping on his head twice before his friend William Paton, also 20, of Clarendon Way, Orpington, emptied his pockets.
The duo, who had taken cocaine, used the cash to pay for a prostitute before going home.
Connor, who featured on the Angel Delight, strawberry dessert packet, was jailed for a minimum of 25 years behind bars at the Old Bailey last Thursday.
Paton, described by friends in court as 'Billy Idiot', also received a life sentence but with a lower minimum term of 23 years. Both had denied murder and robbery but were convicted for each count.
The victim's brother Imran Gulamhuseinwala said: "My brother was only 32 years old when he was killed while walking home in a barbaric, senseless and utterly unprovoked attack.
"They asked no questions, made no demands and no threats. My brother had no argument with the men. But they brutally robbed him of his life and future."
On July 25 last year Paton and Connor went clubbing in central London and to find a prostitute. They took cocaine and Connor withdrew money in Soho but was 'clipped' by a woman who ran off with the cash. Dr Gulamhuseinwala, from Ealing, was out for drinks with a friend and was walking home.
CCTV shows him calling his girlfriend Rebecca Bott just before 4am but during the call the phone went dead.
His mother phoned at 7am saying he had been taken to hospital. He suffered multiple skull fractures and bruising and bleeding to the brain.
Dr Gulamhuseinwala did not recover and was pronounced dead nearly two weeks later on August 5 last year.
