Codey Herrmann, 21, hit Mrs. Maasarwe with a metal pole while walking home from the tram in Bundoora, Melbourne, on January 16.

Herrmann dragged her into the bushes before raping her with such cruelty that she was left with terrible injuries, including a broken bone in her neck from where he smothered her.

When he was done, he again hit the head with the pole. He later threw her body into WD-40 and set her on fire with a barbecue lighter in an awkward attempt to destroy his DNA.

Supreme Court Judge Elizabeth Hollingworth imposed a 30-year non-conditional period in the Victorian Supreme Court on Tuesday afternoon.

& # 39; Women should be free to walk the streets alone & # 39 ;, she said during convictions.

Mrs. Maasarwe had just left the tram when she called her sister Ruba Maasarwe.

Ruba had only just picked up the phone when she heard a blood-curdling scream and her sister in Arabic & # 39; You piece s *** & # 39; shouted.

Then the telephone went silent while Herrmann carried out his pathogenic attack.

At Herrmann's pre-hearing earlier this month, prosecutor Patrick Bourke claimed that Herrmann & # 39; had complete and complete disregard for the humanity of the victim & # 39 ;.

& # 39; It refers to the freedom of everyone, but of course especially to women, to do no more than to walk through a public street in peace and security & he said.

Herrmann was unable to explain why he killed Mrs. Maasarwe, and an apologetic letter to her parents did not answer.

When Herrmann was finished, he again hit the post with the pole. He later threw her body into WD-40 and set her on fire with a barbecue lighter (pictured Mrs. Maasarwe & # 39; s father Saeed who arrived Tuesday at the Supreme Court of Victoria in Melbourne)

& # 39; I did not expect forgiveness because I will never be able to forgive yourself and I will try to make up for the rest of my life.

& # 39; There is no excuse. I apologize, I will pray for you and your family every day.

Earlier this week, Aiia & father Saeed Maasarwe said he didn't care how long his daughter's killer was imprisoned.

& # 39; She smiled all the time. I remember all the time that she thinks positively. And she was very, very sensitive, & he said according to The Guardian.

& # 39; Our compass is not revenge.

& # 39; We think all the time, our mind, our compass is positive, not negative. & # 39;
