A 25-year-old man has appeared in court charged with murdering his mother and stepfather in their home.
Anmol Chana, 25, is accused of killing Jasbir Kaur, 52, and her husband Rupinder Singh Bassan, 51, who were found dead at their home in Oldbury, near Birmingham, early on Tuesday morning.
The couple was pronounced dead at the scene, having suffered serious injuries, West Midlands Police said.
Chana was arrested at his home in Hamilton Road, Smethwick shortly after they were found and charged with their murders.
Appearing at Birmingham Magistrates’ Court, Chana, wearing a grey t-shirt, spoke only to confirm his name, address and date of birth in a brief hearing.
He was remanded in custody to appear at Birmingham Crown Court on 2 March.
