11/02/2011

Today at Leicester Crown Court, Gurmeet Singh Ubhi, 54, was found guilty of murdering his daughter Amrit Kaur Ubhi, 25, at their home address in Leegomery, near Telford on 7th September 2010.

Joanne Barker, Crown Advocate for West Mercia Crown Prosecution Service, said: "This is a tragic case of domestic violence which resulted in the death of a young woman at the hands of her own father.

"Ubhi, having returned home from a night shift was awoken shortly after by his daughter, Armit, playing music. At this point Ubhi snapped and there was a violent altercation which resulted in her death.

"Our thoughts are with the family and friends of Miss Ubhi and hope that the outcome of today's trial will go some way in helping them deal with their loss."
