Above: Mary Konye was found guilty

Mary Konye has been found guilty of throwing acid in the face of her former friend Naomi Oni.


21-year-old Naomi Oni suffered horrific burns to her face and chest, in the attack near her home in Dagenham, east London.


Mary followed Naomi home in 2012 and poured acid over her, while disguised in a veil. The attack is believed to be mirrored on model and TV presenter Katie Piper’s acid attack. She was left scarred and blinded in one eye in an attack arranged by her ex-boyfriend, Daniel Lynch, in 2008.

Judge David Radford warned Konye that she will face a “substantial” jail sentence. She will be sentenced at the court on 7 March.
