Does following the 'rules' keep women safe?
Selamaj, a garage worker from Eastbourne in East Sussex, travelled to London on 17 September intending to assault a random woman after he was spurned by his estranged wife, the Old Bailey heard.
Ms Nessa, who taught a year one class at Rushey Green Primary School in Catford, was found nearly 24 hours later near a community centre in the park.
Koci Selamaj, described by Met Police as "predatory", had a history of violence against his wife
It is believed Ms Nessa had only gone through the park as she was running late and this was the quickest route to the venue.
Grainy footage showed a hooded man passing her, looking back at her, and running toward her before hitting her over the head 34 times in quick succession.
He used such force that parts of the weapon - a metal traffic triangle - shattered and fell to the ground, the Met Police said.
Ten minutes after dragging Ms Nessa away, Selamaj reappeared on camera and began picking up pieces of the murder weapon from the floor. He also used tissues to clean the bench where part of the attack had taken place.
