A MAN has been charged with the murder of a mother and daughter who were stabbed in Solihull in the early hours of Bank Holiday Monday.
Janbaz Tarin, aged 21 of Stonebridge Crescent, Kingshurst and who was married to Raneem under Islamic Law, was sought by officers in connection with the murders and detained in Sparkhill on Thursday evening (August 30).
He appeared at Birmingham Magistrates court on September 1 to face charges for the murder of 22-year-old Raneem Oudeh and 49-year-old Khaola Saleem who were found on Northdown Road.
He was remanded in custody and due to appear at Birmingham Crown Court on September 4.
A forensic post mortem examination concluded that Raneem and her mother died from multiple stab wounds.
Detective Inspector Caroline Corfield, from the homicide team, said: “The response to our appeals over the last few days has been fantastic and resulted in arresting and charging Tarin. I would like to personally thank the community for their support.
“Our thoughts continue to remain with Raneem and Khaola’s family who have been kept fully updated by this development.”
Khaola’s brother in law spoke on behalf of the family: “The family would like to express their sincere thanks for all the police are doing to bring justice for Khaola and Raneem.
“They would also like to thank the local Birmingham community and general public for their continued help and support.
“At this time, their hearts go out to their loved ones who had their lives so tragically cut short and especially to the young children they left behind.
“May they soon rest in peace and may justice be done.”
