Burns then went to B&M Bargains and BBQ and was filming calmly walking around before purchasing tools he used to get rid of the body.
He was also filmed buying a shovel that he used to dig a shallow grave after he burnt the body.
He initially denied the murder but plead guilty to manslaughter on May by accepting he “went too far in self defence”.
Janine Davies of the Crown Prosecution Service, said: “Kane Burns killed Mohamed Mergherbi before making great efforts to cover up what he did.
“As a result, we had to carefully piece evidence together from various sources to show what had actually happened.
“Once the trial had started, Burns accepted he was responsible and changed his plea.
“Mohamed Megherbi’s life was cut short in tragic circumstances and our thoughts are with his family and friends regarding their loss.”
Neighbours reported hearing “loud banging” and arguing coming from Burn’s flat on the night the murder took place.
Neighbour Laura Welsh said she heard a loud bang and someone being dragged on the floor.
Following the murder Burns was spotted buying lighter fluid, matches, bleach and a paper towel at a nearby petrol station.
The shocking video was released by South Wales Police and shows Burns the day after the murder.
‘The c*** is dead.’
The shovel was later recovered by a police officer on the A48.
Cops continued to search the area and discovered a “raised mound of earth.”
A light-coloured item and a rake were found.
Burns told a friend: “I stabbed him up because he was saying stuff about my mother. The c*** is dead.
Prosecutor Michael Jones told the court: “Mohammed Megherbi received catastrophic and fatal head injuries.
“Kane Burns then made every conceivable effort to conceal that murder.
“Burns took great efforts to dispose and bury the body in a shallow grave in a woodland.”
Cops only discovered the murder when they raided flat on an unreleated matter and noticed blood stains on the furniture and blinds.
Prosecutor Jones said: “Remains of the body of Mr Megherbi were discovered in a shallow grave in the undergrowth near a subway.
“Forensic anthropologists concluded that fractures to the skull were consistent with a sharp impact with an object such as a machete, axe or cleaver.
