Women accused of double murder

A 63-year-old woman and her daughter-in-law will return to court today charged with murdering two men whose bodies were discovered in a country lane on the outskirts of Bradford.

Arab Sultana and Kainet Bibi, 27, who live at the same address in the city are also charged with trying to cover up the alleged double killing. The bodies of Shahbzada Muhammed Imran, 27, from Bradford, and Ahmedin Sayed Khyel, 35, from London, were found by a passing motorist last Tuesday night.

The two women, who spoke through an interpreter during brief proceedings before Bradford magistrates' court yesterday were remanded in custody and will appear before Bradford Crown Court today. Afterwards, West Yorkshire Police named a man, Mohammed Zubair, who they want to talk to in connection with the murders.
