Wolverhampton Stabbings: Man Killed Sister And Then Himself

West Midlands police have confirmed that a man killed his sister and critically injured his mother in a knife attack at a Wolverhampton flat before turning the knife on himself.

Officers were called to a high-rise block in Leasowes Drive, in the Merry Hill area of the city, at around 9.45am yesterday following reports a knifeman had attacked two women.

Officers stormed the first floor apartment, in Highfield Court, and used stun grenades to distract the attacker and detain him.

A woman aged 33 was found with fatal stab wounds and pronounced dead at the scene, while the 36-year-old attacker – the woman’s brother – is understood to have turned the knife on himself and also died a short time later.
