Chilling CCTV footage shows a lying killer threaten his ex-partner and her mother hours before he murdered them both.
Janbaz Tarin, 21, today admitted killing Raneem Oudeh, 22, and Khaola Saleem, 49, outside Mrs Saleem’s home in Solihull, West Midlands, on August 27.
Tarin – who was also jailed for life with a minimum term of 32 years today – had been married to Ms Oudeh under Islamic law but their relationship broke down after his lies about his secret family in the Middle East emerged.
On the night of their deaths the mother and daughter were on a night out at a local shisha bar when a jilted Tarin turned up.
He is caught on camera hurling abuse at the pair and had previously threatened her: ‘If you leave me, I will kill you and your family.’
At a plea hearing at Birmingham Crown Court, police told of how Tarin went to ‘hunt down’ Ms Oudeh weeks after she found out he had a secret wife, three children, and another on the way in Afghanistan.
He left the shisha bar armed with a knife and tragically, just a few hours later, Ms Oudeh was on the phone to police when he stabbed her.
Mrs Saleem attempted to save her daughter from the onslaught, but she too was fatally knifed by Tarin – who fled the scene before officers arrived.
Police then launched a manhunt and offered a £5,000 reward to anyone who could help find the killer – and he was cornered by police in the Sparkhill area of Birmingham three days later.
Sentencing Tarin at Birmingham Crown Court today, the judge told him his crimes had ‘devastated’ the victims’ family.
Mrs Justice Sue Carr said: ‘Janbaz Tarin, you are now 21 years old and stand convicted on your guilty pleas of the murders of your estranged wife, Raneem Oudeh and her mother, Khaola Saleem, in the early hours of Monday, August 27.
‘Having stalked Raneem the evening before, you equipped yourself with a knife, followed Raneem to her mother’s address and carried out a vicious and sustained attack on both women.’
The judge said: ‘You had been in a relationship with Raneem, having married through an Islamic ceremony in 2016, with the reluctant blessing of her family.
‘Around the end of last year, Raneem discovered that, contrary to your assurances you had already married a first wife with whom you had multiple children and who lived in Afghanistan.
‘You visited Afghanistan and on your return, Raneem decided to end her relationship with you. You refused to accept this.
‘At a family meeting, you were asked to keep away from her. Although you agreed at the time, you failed to honour that agreement.’
Mrs Justice Carr added: ‘During the course of the year, you subjected Raneem to a pattern of threatening, abusive and controlling behaviour.
‘Social services and the police became involved, although Raneem declined to make any formal complaints against you.
‘However, on August 16, Raneem sought and was granted a non-molestation order against you based on her fear of violence from you.’
The judge told Tarin that after stalking his victims, he confronted them as Ms Oudeh was on the phone to police.
Mrs Justice Carr said: ‘You attacked Raneem in an area overlooked by Mrs Saleem’s house. You stabbed Raneem multiple times, with the knife you had collected. She tried to defend herself.
‘When Mrs Saleem stepped in, no doubt in an attempt to protect her daughter, you stabbed her, whilst holding on to Raneem by one of her ankles and dragging her along.’
She added: ‘Your final act was to stab Raneem again, twice in the chest, before running away.’
The judge said: ‘It is difficult to do justice to the moving and distressing statements of Mr Saleem, Mrs Saleem’s husband and Raneem’s stepfather, and of Mrs Norris, Mrs Saleem’s sister and Raneem’s aunt, or to the dignity shown by the Saleem family in court.
‘Mrs Saleem was a wonderful woman, wife and mother to five other children, loved by everyone.
‘She was well known in the community, working with the homeless, poor and needy.
