Man found guilty of killing wife and neighbour
A man who fatally stabbed his wife and neighbour has been convicted of their murders.
Tamer Moustafa, 40, was found guilty on 26 November 2020 of two counts of murder following the trial at Birmingham Crown Court.
On 16 March 2020, Moustafa stabbed his 43-year-old wife Nelly Moustafa to death in a brutal attack at their home in Belle Walk, Moseley, following which he called police saying he had murdered her. He then went next door to the neighbour’s house where he inflicted fatal injuries on 52-year-old Zahida Bi.
Angela Millington of West Midlands CPS said: "The events of that morning led to a tragic outcome for both families who now have to live with this devastating loss. This was a challenging case that included evidence from four psychiatrists, and the CPS worked very closely with police officers to present a complete picture to the jury in this horrific case.
"I am very grateful to the police for their hard work concerning the investigation. While no verdict can bring back a lost loved one, today's convictions will hopefully allow the families a measure of closure. Our thoughts remain with the family of both victims."
