Sean Bale stabbed his friend Paulis Petraeus in Wolverhampton to death while he was apparently laughing and joking with her. He had hidden a hunting knife which he threw into the victim’s chest after he got angry over a phone call.

He lied many times about what happened. At one point he claimed to have had an epileptic seizure before he could change his story by accusing him of arguing with Mr Petraeus.

The victim’s partner had witnessed the murder in Heath Town in July last year. Billy, in his 20s, and Clover Lee, of Heathrow, were convicted of murder.

Nizam Salangi killed his wife at his Brooms Grove pizza parlor and then buried her body in the forest. His eight-year marriage to 28-year-old Zubeida Salangi turned sour.

He reported her missing in April 2020, but in fact killed her on March 28 of the same year in the prego pizza business. They had a discussion yesterday, part of which was recorded.

Salangi even sent fake messages from his late wife’s phone that she was returning to Afghanistan. He captured his two brothers, Mohammad Yasin Salangi and Mohammad Ramin Salangi, to help bury his body in a shallow grave in the woods near Kopi Holt Lane, Lower Bentley.

Police found the exact location of the burial, but as they did not dig deep enough, they did not find Zubeida for another six months when they dug further. Salangi, 44, of Austin Road, Bromsgrove, was convicted of murder.

Her brother, both from Adams Craft Place, Kerfley, Cardiff, was convicted of aiding and abetting a criminal. Yassin Salangi, 34, who spells his nickname differently, was sentenced to four years and nine months in prison. Ramin Salangi, 31, was sentenced to six years in prison.

Inspired by revenge, Ken Stonehouse killed Gary Warner at Sutton Coldfield over a long-running feud. The brutal attack was carried out seven years ago in retaliation for the victim’s alleged breaking of his brother’s jaw, which resulted in him being hospitalized where his lung was broken during the operation.

At the age of 13, Stonehouse, an eyewitness to the incident, developed post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and confessed to doctors that he had dreamed of killing Mr Warner. That’s what he did in the early hours of October 31 when he was lured to his address on Stone Avenue in Falcon Lodge State. He stabbed her in the chest with a formal dagger.

When he did so, he said: “This is for my brother, you.” Stonehouse, who has also been diagnosed with schizophrenia, was convicted of murder after a retrial.

Nathaniel Pope

Nathaniel Pope made a vicious and deadly attack on three-year-old Kirmani Watson Darby, causing him to bleed on the couch while his girlfriend – the boy’s mother – Alicia Watson was out. The convicted drug dealer, in his 30s, attacked a West Bromwich flat so violently that it caused so much internal bleeding that Kirmani was unable to walk.

The prosecution argued that the boy had also suffered “constant and extremely painful” beatings over the months, resulting in his death on at least five occasions. Its injuries will need to be like the force associated with a traffic collision on the road.

The pope of Evans Street, Wolverhampton, has been convicted of murder. Watson, who is in her 30s and of Rednor Road, Handsworth, has been in a relationship with her since her son’s death. He was found guilty of causing or allowing the death of a child and was sentenced to 11 years in prison. Both were also convicted of multiple counts of child abuse.

Five people were involved in the deadly firing from a quad bike of Abdul Rehman Abu Bakar at the High Gate. The 24-year-old was attending a barbecue at the start of Ramadan in May 2018 and was about to leave when a man in a convoy of three cars opened fire on him.

The motive for the killings remains a mystery, and it is unknown at this time what he will do after leaving the post. A gang used a rally point in Elm Rock and made espionage visits to the murder scene.

Two stolen vehicles used in the plot were set on fire, while a third was never recovered. Fahmi Dahir, Mustafa Omar, Shire Elmi, Abdul Rahman Deri and Abdul Rahman Yusuf, now in their 20s, were convicted of murder, perjury and arson. They were treated as ‘secondary parties’ in the belief that the real gunman was still at large.

Lukas Domeradzki killed his friend Sebastian Zygmunt with a smooth slab and then began to spend and gamble with the victim’s money. He is thought to have survived an earlier attempt to oust him following alcohol and drug abuse.

Domaradzki tried to send the victim’s girlfriend away from the perfume in an attempt to send a message using Mr Sigment’s phone, but it only aroused suspicion because the text was written differently. Half an hour before the body was found in his conservatory, he slipped, accusing a mutual friend of murder. Domiradzki, in his 30s and no known address, was found guilty of murder.

Idris Mohammed, a heartless thief, tied up a weak pensioner, David Verlo, in his own home in Helsingborg and left him to die. He sat the 78-year-old victim in a chair and forced him to reveal his PIN number before withdrawing £ 250 from his account, which had a balance of £ 19,000.

Muhammad then returned to the property with his partner, O Shi Swan, by the time Mr Verloo died. They stole another bank card that had expired. The victim suffered a heart attack, but it was not immediately clear if he died hours or days before police found his body.

Muhammad, in his 40s and at Eckenald Port Road, Ladywood, was convicted of two counts of murder, attempted theft, theft and fraud. Swan, who is also in his 40s and lives in Vinson Green Road, Birmingham, was jailed for six years after being found guilty of theft and fraud.

The killers, brothers Amos and Jason Wilshire, killed 87-year-old pensioner Arthur Gamble while burglarizing his home in Little Austin, Staffordshire. At the time of sentencing, his 29-year-old older brother, Amos, killed 88-year-old Josephine Kaye while he was working alone in a raid in Stoke-on-Trent three years later.

The two brothers from Derbyshire were convicted of murder as well as serious bodily harm and conspiracy to commit robbery.
