Man sentenced for killing wife and neighbour
A man who killed his wife and neighbour in brutal attacks has been sentenced to life imprisonment with a minimum term of 30 years.
Tamer Moustafa, 40, was sentenced today (4 December 2020) at Birmingham Crown Court for stabbing to death his 43-year-old wife Nelly Moustafa at their home in Belle Walk, Moseley and for inflicting fatal injuries on his 52-year-old neighbour Zahida Bi thereafter.
Angela Millington of the CPS said: "The significant sentence imposed on the defendant reflects the horrific nature of his unprovoked attacks on two defenceless women. Nothing can compensate for the tragic loss of two beloved mothers but we hope that today’s sentence gives the families of Nelly Moustafa and Zahida Bi a measure of closure.”
