Man burns ex-wife, kid, father-in-law to death in Britain

United Kingdom,Crime/Disaster/Accident, Fri, 20 Apr 2012 IANS

London, April 20 (IANS) A man in Britain killed his estranged wife, baby son and father-in-law by setting their house ablaze after being "encouraged and goaded" by his new girlfriend, a court heard. The family was asleep at the time of incident.


Iranian-born Danai Muhammadi, 24, allegedly started a fire at Melissa Crook's family home in Chatham, Kent by squirting petrol through the letterbox, The Sun reported.


Muhammadi's wife Melissa, 20, and 15-month-old son Noah died in the arson attack while her 49-year-old father Mark Crook suffered severe burns and died at the hospital.


The couple's marriage had collapsed six months earlier. The man acted out of "spite, anger and resentment", the Maidstone Crown Court heard.


However, Melissa's mother Amanda, 49, and older brother Bohdan, 21, escaped.


The court heard that the petrol had been sprayed at the foot of the stairs -- cutting off any escape route for the sleeping family at the three-bedroom property.
