A BLONDE Danish teenage girl who stabbed her mother to death after binge-watching sick ISIS beheading videos has been jailed for nine years.

Lisa Borch was aged just 15 when she and her 29-year-old Iraqi refugee boyfriend murdered her mother at their home in the northern town of Kvissel.

Borch, who is now 16, had spent hours watching gruesome footage of British and American hostages being beheaded by ISIS executioner Jihadi John before she killed Tina Romer Holtegaard.

Borch will serve nine years in prison for her part in the crime, the Danish High Court ruled after dismissing an appeal against her sentence.

The nine-year stretch she was initially given in September is the longest prison sentence handed to a teenager in modern times in Denmark.

Ms Holtegaard was stabbed more than 20 times in the brutal attack in October 2014.

Borch claimed that she had only initially confessed to the crime because she was terrified of her boyfriend Bakhtiar Mohammed Abdulla.

But judges rubbished that theory, saying both had played their part in the murder after becoming obsessed with radical Islam.

Borch’s obsession with ISIS began when she fell in love with a Swedish Muslim who later left her to return to his wife and children.

She later fell in love with Iraq-born Abdulla, the court heard.

Borch is said to have spent much of Autumn 2014 watching sick ISIS propaganda videos – including sick footage of Britons Alan Henning and David Haines being decapitated.

On the night she murdered her mother, Borch watched ISIS videos “all evening long”, prosecutors said.

Borch even showed her twin sister the knife she planned to use to kill their mother, but the comment was dismissed as a sick joke.

During the trial Borch and Abdulla blamed one another for the murder.

He claimed he arrived at the property to find that Borch had already murdered her mother, while she argued that he had actually been the knifeman.

Abdulla was sentenced to 13 years in prison and will be expelled from Denmark upon release.

The pair were also ordered to pay around £40,000 in compensation to Mrs Holtergaard’s husband – Borch’s stepfather – as well as her twin sister and younger brother.
