A HUSBAND and wife have been stabbed to death in their own home.
The bodies of Pin Chang, 58 and his 50-year-old wife Quoi Chang were found at their home on Hermitage Road in Solihull in the early hours of Monday.
A 23-year-old man, who is known by both victims, remained under police guard in hospital in connection with the deaths as we went to press yesterday (Wednesday).
West Midlands Police have said they are not looking for anyone else.
Detective Inspector Martin Slevin, who is leading the double murder inquiry, said: “This a serious and devastating incident which has led to the deaths of a man and woman, and a young man continues to receive treatment.
“Detectives have been working at the scene, conducting forensic enquiries and speaking to local people and anyone who has information to help our inquiry but is yet to speak to police is urged to come forward as soon as they can.”
Police were called to the address just after 5am and the road was closed for most of Monday whilst forensic investigations were carried out at the property.
Specially trained liaison officers have spent the past few days with family members and were continuing to try and locate other relatives of the pair.
Chief Superintendent Alex Murray, commander of Solihull Police, said: “This is a shocking and deeply upsetting incident in which two people have tragically lost their lives.
“Many people who live locally will undoubtedly have been concerned and distressed by events and I’d like to reassure the community we are doing everything possible to investigate this terrible crime.
“We have officers out in the neighbourhood to provide a visible reassurance and to offer support to anyone upset or concerned by what has happened. House to house enquiries will also be conducted.”
