Two South Meczyki men help cover up the brutal murder of his brother’s wife

Two men from Caerphilly have been jailed for helping cover up the brutal murder of their older brother’s wife.

Nezam Salangi, 44, a pizza shop owner, killed his wife, but claimed he had left her for another man. He continued to protest his innocence as he was condemned in court for creating fake leads for using bank accounts and phone messages to show that Zobeida Salangi was still alive.

A trial at Worcester Crown Court reported that Salangi buried her husband at night in a “deep” temporary grave and pretended to have no knowledge of his whereabouts until she was found six months later. Salangi, originally from northern Afghanistan, is believed to have attacked and killed his 28-year-old wife at their pizza business in Bromsgrove, Worcestershire.

Salangi of Austin Road, Bromsgrove, later reported his wife’s disappearance to police, telling them that “she went out for a run and never came back” after leaving her for a “new boyfriend”.

Sentencing on Thursday, Mr Justice Hilliard admitted that the two younger brothers, who had served with the Allied forces in Afghanistan, suffered from post-traumatic stress disorder. Condemning aspects of the case as a “shameful” attempt to make a false mark, the judge told Nejam Salangi: “It is clear that the marriage had been unhappy for some time.”

While ruling that the business owner had contemplated killing his wife prior to the murder, the judge told her: “I bet you had treated her violently, slapped her with an open hand and pulled her hair, From which he cut it. Less.

“Zobaida contemplated taking her own life and it is extremely sad that it came down to her. In one of the recordings (found after the murder) you denied divorce and said either she died or you did. Clearly the relationship was completely broken. I’m sure you intended to kill him.”

The judge said the disposal of the body at a site near Lower Bentley, Worcestershire was a serious factor in the murder. “He was not properly buried, but was concealed to cover up the murder,” the judge said. “She stayed there for six and a half months and the pathologist could not pinpoint the cause of death.”

Nejam Salangi was born in 1978 in Afghanistan and moved to the UK in 2002 after his family was targeted by the Taliban. He divorced his first wife in 2010 and married his sister’s friend Zobeidah in 2012 in an arranged marriage, initially settling in Birmingham.

The court heard that he continued to claim that the body found near Bromsgrove was not that of his wife and that she was still alive. In a victim impact statement read in court records during the sentencing hearing, the victim’s family said: “We are still in deep shock and sadness.

Zobaidah, the court heard, was “loved by people of all races and beliefs” and wanted to start a career in the medical profession, studying and achieving high grades in college in difficult conditions in Afghanistan.

The family’s statement said: “He was ruthlessly and brutally taken away from us and our human society. This pain, suffering and misery will never go away and we will never forget about it.”
