An ISIS-inspired pharmacy student who repeatedly stabbed his elderly neighbour with a hunting knife has been jailed.
Ihsas Khan, 25, was handed a maximum 36-year jail sentence, with a non-parole period of 27 years, on Wednesday, over the attack against Wayne Greenhalgh, 57, at Minto, south-west Sydney, in September 2016.
Justice Geoffrey Bellew was satisfied the original intention of Khan was to carry out the crime on the 15th anniversary of the World Trade Centre terrorist attack in New York, in the United States, to gain international recognition.
