Janbaz Tarin has been sentenced to life in prison after admitting the double murder of his wife and her mother in a frenzied knife attack.
Tarin admitted killing Raneem Oudeh and Khaola Saleem in a frenzied knife attack outside Mrs Saleem’s home in Solihull on August 27.
Tarin, 21, was ordered to serve a minimum of 32 years behind bars before he will be considered for parole, at which time he will be 53.
Tarin "spent the day hunting" down Ms Oudeh who was on the phone to West Midlands Police when she was savagely attacked by Tarin, outside her mother’s home.
When Mrs Saleem bravely attempted to save her daughter from the onslaught, she too was fatally stabbed by Tarin, who fled the scene before officers arrived.
He was arrested three days later.
Sentencing Tarin at Birmingham Crown Court on Monday, the judge told him his crimes had "devastated" the victims’ family.
Mrs Justice Sue Carr said: "Janbaz Tarin, you are now 21 years old and stand convicted on your guilty pleas of the murders of your estranged wife, Raneem Oudeh and her mother, Khaola Saleem, in the early hours of Monday, August 27.
"Having stalked Raneem the evening before, you equipped yourself with a knife, followed Raneem to her mother’s address and carried out a vicious and sustained attack on both women."
Birmingham Crown Court heard how Tarin’s marriage to Ms Oudeh, 22, fell apart when she discovered he had a secret second family in the Middle East.
The 22-year-old had filed a restraining order with police but Tarin flouted it.
Ms Oudeh had previously been in contact with police and social services about her abusive ex-husband, who subjected her to beatings and death threats.
The head of West Midlands Police’s CID described the crime as "one of the most brutal and heart-rending" he had seen in 150 homicides.
It came as the family of Ms Oudeh, a mum-of-one, revealed Tarin "hassled" the 22-year-old into marriage after they met at Solihull College, where he enrolled after lying about his age.
Chillingly, he later told her "when I saw you, I said this is mine".
But after being wed, Tarin turned violent towards Ms Oudeh and the couple had split "months" before the killing, according to her aunt Nour Norris.
She said: "He used to threaten her many times ‘if you leave me, I will kill you and your family’."
In a victim impact statement, Nour Norris, Mrs Saleem’s sister, said: "The list of broken hearts goes on and on. That night this killer played god and he destroyed an entire family.
"Let us send a message that those who abuse and murder women will face justice."
The circumstances of the stabbing are being investigated by the Independent Office for Police Conduct (IOPC) and the force said it would accept any "learning".
Ms Oudeh’s two-and-a-half year old son is now living with Mrs Norris.
Asked if she believed the police and authorities had failed to do enough that night to stop Tarin, and in the months beforehand to protect the victim, Mrs Norris replied: "Yes we do."
"We do feel that and we feel there’s a lot of women out there as well probably going through the same thing, who agree with us."
David Rouse, from the CPS, said: “Janbaz Tarin is a highly dangerous man who was angry at Raneem for moving out of the flat they shared. Raneem had attempted to cut ties with him, with the help of her mother, after learning he had a wife and three children in Pakistan.
“On the day of the murder, Tarin followed his victims before launching a frenzied attack and stabbing them both to death. He fled the scene and was arrested by West Midlands Police four days later following an extensive manhunt.
“On the strength of the case built by the CPS and police he ultimately pleaded guilty and will now have to face the consequences.
“No sentence passed by the court can lessen the devastating impact of Tarin’s actions on the family and friends of the victims and our thoughts remain with them.”
