A man was jailed for life for hacking to death his stepdaughter and a young boy with scissors to cover-up a sex attack. Tariq Rehman, of Bradford, attacked Rachel Rooney, 15, and Jonathan Copley, with such force, the scissors snapped in two, Leeds Crown Court was told.

Hours earlier, he had tried to molest Rachel, his stepdaughter. Rehman, 35, a district manager with Britannic Assurance, slaughtered the children to stop them telling about the sex attack, it was alleged. A jury of seven women and five men took less than three hours to find him guilty of their murders.
