The millionaire father of Kemi Adeyoola, the teenager who killed 84-year-old Anne Mendel, says he has disowned her.
Bola Adeyoola, a property management tycoon, described what she did as "evil".
He said: "When I saw Mrs Mendel's picture, I started crying.
"If I was a member of that lady's family, I don't know what my reaction would be.
"As a Christian, I can't believe anyone would do that. What she did was evil. She is no longer my daughter. I don't even like her."
He said Adeyoola had not had a deprived childhood but that he had lost touch with her when, aged 11, she was taken away by her mother following a row over money.
Adeyoola was privately educated and her mother is said to have received a £4 million settlement on her divorce.
But he said he passed money and messages to her through her grandparents. He blamed his daughter's obsession with money and material goods on her mother.
"Kemi was very kind, very loving when she was young," said her father. "She has changed."
