Anmol Chana will be sentenced on Friday

A knife-obsessed man who went to the pub after “ferociously” stabbing his mum and stepfather to death has been found guilty of murder.

Anmol Chana, 26, killed Jasbir Kaur, 52, and husband Rupinder Bassan, 51, in the “horrendous attack” at their home in Oldbury, West Midlands, in February.

Jurors at Birmingham Crown Court heard both victims suffered more than 20 injuries.

Chana, of Hamilton Road, Smethwick, is due to be sentenced on Friday.

Jasbir Kaur and Rupinder Bassan were stabbed “ferociously”, the court heard

During his trial, the court heard how the defendant had stolen money and a car from the couple after he murdered them, before contacting an escort and calmly playing pool in a pub.

Det Insp Hannah Whitehouse, from West Midlands Police, said it was a “horrendous attack”.

‘Horrific scene’

“I think it is quite chilling that having murdered these two people in cold blood he then stole money from them, took their car and stole that as well and then used that money to try to buy a plane ticket and leave the country,” she said.

“In amongst that he went for a drink in a pub and made phone calls to escorts as well, and that just really compounds the violence of the crime by virtue of its lack of remorse.”

The court heard Chana had previously made threats against his mother and sister and had a “fascination with knives” dating back to when he was 16.

“The violence that has been used in committing these murders was really, really horrific, the scene was horrific,” Det Insp Whitehouse said.

“Having pieced together his actions… just reinforces the cold-blooded nature of what he did.”

Police said they do not know what caused Chana to murder Mrs Kaur and Mr Bassan

Mrs Kaur was described as the “toughest… most loving” person, by the couple’s daughter who said they were “a perfect match”.

“I am sad that their lives were ended so quickly without a second thought by a person whom they both loved dearly,” she said.
