Sarah Everard’s dad asks for photo of her to be shown in court during statement

Sarah Everard's family asked for a specific photo of her to be shown in court as her killer sat in the dock.

Murderous police officer Wayne Couzens, 48, was made to listen to the trauma and suffering his evil acts on March 3 have caused and will continue to cause his victim's family.

During the first of the two-day hearing at the Old Bailey on Wednesday, the grisly details of Couzens' kidnap, rape and murder of 33-year-old Sarah Everard were revealed.

When her devastated family spoke of how Couzens has "tortured" them by the way he killed their "precious little girl", they wanted Sarah's face to be presented.

South London Press reports Jeremy Everard asked for a particular photograph of his daughter smiling at the camera, to be seen as he read out his victim impact statement on Wednesday.

Mr Everard also asked for the since-fired Met Police officer to look at him as he spoke directly to him.

He said: "We loved being a part of Sarah's world and expected her to have a full and happy life.

"I can never forgive you for what you have done, for taking Sarah away from us. All my family want is Sarah back with us.

"No punishment that you receive will ever compare to the pain and torture that you have inflicted on us."

Sarah’s sister Katie Everard told the attacker: "She never got home because a predator – you – was on the loose. You took her life. Children that will never be born. Generations that will never exist. Her future no longer exists."

She asked Couzens: "What could she have thought she had done wrong? What lies did you tell her? When did she realise that she wasn't going to survive the night?"

Sarah Everard’s mother, Susan added: "I yearn for her. I remember all the lovely things about her: she was caring, she was funny. She was clever, but she was good at practical things too. She was a beautiful dancer. She was a wonderful daughter."

Footage of Wayne Couzens being interviewed about Sarah Everard for the first time has been released.

Detectives can be seen holding up a photo of the missing 33-year-old on their phone as they quizzed Couzens over her going missing on March 3.
