Man arrested for stabbing ex and her mother to death after they found out about his secret marriage
21-year-old Janbaz Tarin stabbed 22-year-old Raneem Oudeh and 49-year-old Khaola Saleem to death in Solihull early morning on August 27
A vengeful boyfriend confessed to murdering his ex and her mother in a deranged knife attack right outside their home after he was questioned about his secret wife. Twenty one-year-old Janbaz Tarin stabbed 22-year-old Raneem Oudeh and 49-year-old Khaola Saleem to death in Solihull early morning on August 27.
Tarin, who wed Raneem under Sharia Law, was arrested three days after the incident after being on the run. He admitted to his crimes to the Birmingham Crown Court.
Raneem had left Tarin weeks before she was killed as she found out that he had a secret wife in the Middle East. The mother moved back in with Khaola and her 2-year-old but the authorities were called to the residence several times after she fought with Tarin, reported The Sun.

On the night that Raneem and Khaola were murdered, the couple was seen in CCTV footage arguing inside a shisha lounge in Birmingham before Raneem called 999. The footage showed Tarin driving back to the their home in a white van and then waiting for the mother and daughter to return.
Raneem was on the phone with emergency services when Tarin started attacking her savagely with a knife. When Khaola tried to save her daughter from the attack, Tarin turned on her too and fatally stabbed her. The cowardly monster then fled the scene and led the police on a three day manhunt.
After she died, Raneem's devastated family revealed that she had been "hassled" into the marriage after she met Tarin at Solihull College, where he was able to enroll after lying about his age. He later said eerily "when I saw you, I said this is mine". The relationship became violent after the coule split up "months" before the murders.
Tarin's aunt Nour Norris said: "He used to threaten her many times 'if you leave me, I will kill you and your family'. Unfortunately she only told us that at the end because she knew, she couldn't cope with him anymore with all the violence he was giving her and she knew that the police and authority and everybody wasn't really helping her so she felt like she could say those things."
She continued: "One day she said to me, Auntie, I feel my life's going to end. I said 'don't say that'. That was a few weeks before she was murdered."
Even though the pair split up Tarin repeatedly harassed Raneem and even slept outside her mother's house for 12 consecutive nights. Raneem then managed to get a non-molestation order against him after he smashed her phone on August 10 but he disobeyed it.
In the hours before the brutal assault, Raneem had called the authorities three times. She was only in the country after she fled the Syrian war and was reunited with her mother and stepfather, who had lived in Solihull for 16 years.
The Independent Office for Police Conduct is carrying out an investigation into the police response. Tarin is set to be sentenced at the Birmingham Crown Court at a date that is yet to be fixed.
