Murder of Solihull mum and daughter to feature on TV crime documentary

Sarah Mason 4th Mar, 2022

THE BRUTAL murder of a Solihull mum and her daughter is set to feature in a crime documentary.

Dermot Murnaghan will be dedicating a programme of his Killer Britain series to Raneem Oudeh and her mother Khaola Saleem, who were fatally stabbed by Raneem’s ex-partner Janbaz Tarin, outside their home in Solihull in 2018.

It is set to air on March 21 at 9pm on Crime and Investigation channel.

Tarin was jailed for 32 years after repeatedly stabbing Raneem, who had a two-year-old son from another relationship, and her mother Khaola, 49, in Northdown Road, Solihull.

Raneem met Tarin at a college in Solihull and they soon married in an Islamic ceremony.

Raneem, 22, tried to end her relationship with him when she discovered he was already married and had three children with his wife in Afghanistan.

However she continued to be harassed and threatened by Tarin who slept for 12 consecutive nights outside her address and smashed her phone on a separate occasion.

The night before the murders Tarin had assaulted them in a local shisha bar.

While on the phone to a 999-call handler to report the incident, Tarin struck and killed Raneem and her mother.

A major manhunt was launched, with Tarin’s face featuring across the media.

Then a member of the public recognised him on the evening of August 30 and he was arrested.

Speaking shortly after the pair were murdered Mohamed Saleem, 47, Khaola’s husband of 16 years and Raneem stepfather said: “My wife was the most beautiful woman in the world – same with my stepdaughter.

“If you looked at them you could see they are full of joy, full of life.

“We used to have family gatherings, my wife was always the main entertainer, bringing all the family together.

“She was a strong character. She never thought about herself, she always wanted to have things the best for everyone else.

“Especially for her daughter, she was always there for her.

“Just by looking at her, people forget their bad day. She was always smiling, full of life, and socialising.”
