Life sentences for hammer killings

A MAN who bludgeoned his grandparents and uncle to death with a claw hammer was yesterday given three life sentences.

Rajesh Dass, 24, from Handsworth, Birmingham, was convicted of the murders in April, but the judge adjourned sentencing after the defendant threw himself from a prison balcony, suffering serious head injuries. Dass had denied murder, but admitted the killings on the grounds of diminished responsibility.
