A killer convicted of murdering his mother and stepfather in a brutal knife attack is now facing a life sentence. Anmol Chana, 26, from Hamilton Road, Smethwick, was accused of killing his mother, Jasbir Kaur, 52, and her husband Rupinder Singh Bussan, 51, in a trial at Birmingham Crown Court.
The couple lived in Oldbury, West Midlands. The court heard how Chana was a “knife obsessed” young man who showed a great deal of animosity towards his mother. He had even sent her a text telling her how he wanted to knife her before the killings took place in February this year.
After the killings took place he robbed their home and stole Mr Bussan’s car before calmly playing pool in a pub. He also planned to leave the UK, booking himself a plane ticket to Italy via Turkey.
Also he had written a “to do” list which included items such as “rob a Lidl” and “buy a new knife”. Jason Pitter QC, prosecution barrister, said at the start of the trial that both victims had died of multiple stab wounds and that it was tragic that they had allowed the defendant to stay at their home that same day.
After Chana’s conviction West Midlands Police issued a statement saying Chana was arrested at his home on 25th February after claiming he had killed them in self defence.
A leading Inspector on the case, Hannah Whitehouse, said “it was a heinous crime carried out on his own family in their own home, which should of been a place they felt safe”. She went on to say that the investigation revealed that Chana was obsessed with knives and had previously said that he wanted to kill his mother. Sentencing takes place today and is expected to be life imprisonment.
