Lisa Borch was aged only 15 when in October last year she spent hours on YouTube watching footage of the savage decapitations of David Haines and Alan Henning.

Afterwards she took a long-bladed kitchen knife and stabbed her mother Tina Römer Holtegaard at least 20 times at the home they shared in rural Kvissel.

Following the brutal murder, the teenager called police claiming: 'I heard my mother scream and I looked out the window and saw a white man running away. Please come here, there is blood everywhere.'

On arrival police found MrsHoltegaard, whose husband was away on a short business trip at the time of her murder, covered in her own blood in bed.

Despite making the frantic phone call, the victim's daughter was discovered sitting on a chair in the living room playing with her iPhone and watching videos on YouTube. When police asked where her mother was, Borch refused to leave her computer and simply pointed upstairs.

It was this apparent disinterest which made her prime suspect in a matter of minutes.

A later police examination of the computer showed that she had watched endless repeats of the ISIS beheadings.

The court heard that Borch's twin sister had recently moved out of the family home because she couldn't stand the constant arguing that went on between her mother and sister.

Borch even showed her twin sister the knife she planned to use to kill their mother, but the comment was incorrectly written off a macabre joke.

Prosecutors said it was this 'endless rowing which cost the mother her life.'

Prosecutor Karina Skou told the court 'This murder was cold blooded, ice cold and committed in a bestial manner.'

Borch's twin was in court to see her sister sentenced but did not look at her during the trial.
