A father has been charged with the murder of his two children almost three months after they were found dead at their family home in Hamstead.
Endris Mohammed was last night (Jan 17) interviewed by detectives for the first time since his release from hospital where he was being treated for burns suffered during a car fire in Staffordshire.
The 46-year-old, of Holland Road, has now been charged with the murder of Saros Endris, aged eight, and six-year-old Leanor Endris.
He is also accused of attempted murder of the children’s mother Penil Teklehaimanot.
Mohammed will appear at Walsall Magistrates Court this morning (Wednesday 18 January) where the murder charges will be put to him.
The children were discovered at their home in Holland Road in the early hours of 28 October last year following a house fire; they were pronounced dead at hospital.
Post mortem examinations were carried out and forensic tests are on-going to establish the cause of death.
