Moseley man convicted of killing wife and neighbour in jealous drug-fuelled rage
A jealous husband who stabbed his wife to death in a drug-fuelled rage been convicted of her murder.
As their marriage crumbled, Tamer Moustafa wrongly accused his wife Nelly of having affairs with their next door neighbour and even his own father, say police.
Despite the unfounded accusations, jealous Tamer gruesomely murdered his wife, then calmly had a cigarette before continuing on his murderous rampage.
On the morning of Monday 16 March earlier this year, Moustafa sent his two oldest sons to work and took the two younger ones to school. He then returned to the home they all shared in Belle Walk, Moseley.
Just after 11am, he called emergency services and said he had killed his wife, before going outside to light a cigarette and relax as he waited for police to arrive.
But just moments before they showed up, Tamer disappeared into his neighbour’s home and within two minutes, repeatedly stabbed the wife of the man he had wrongly believed his wife to be having an affair with.
Police and paramedics were met with a horrific scene at both properties. Nelly Moustafa, aged 43, was found in a bedroom with multiple stab wounds. Sadly nothing could be done to save her and she was pronounced dead at the scene, according to West Midlands Police.
Next door, 52-year-old Zahida Bi was found in her garage. She too had been stabbed multiple times and was rushed to hospital, but sadly she also died from her injuries.
Tamer Moustafa was arrested and taken to hospital, complaining of chest pains, having consumed a large amount of cocaine, but did not require treatment.
He was charged with both murders and at trial alleged he was suffering from a delusional disorder, but the jury did not accept his plea to manslaughter on the grounds of diminished responsibility, and he was found guilty of both murders.
The 40-year-old will be sentenced at Birmingham Crown Court on Friday 4 December.
Detective Inspector Wes Martin, from the force’s homicide unit, said: “Two families have been left without mothers in deeply shocking circumstances.
“The violence inflicted on these women is incomprehensible and my thoughts remain with both families as they continue to grieve their loss.
“There are no winners here as even the conviction of Tamer Moustafa leaves his children with neither parent.”
