Rent row landlord jailed for murders

A verdict has been reached in England where a landlord was accused of stabbing to death two visitors to his tenant. Mehmet Ozen, 41, rented out a room in his flat to Keyleigh Write when he lost his job. They fought over rent when he did not pass the money along to the owners of the property. The argument turned violent, ending in the deaths of Ms Write's partner and best friend.
Darren Harwood and Charlotte Piccaver, both 26, were unarmed when they were killed by Mr Ozen and Ms Write was injured in the attack as well. He has been sentenced to no fewer than 27 years in prison after Mr Justice Flaux said that he felt as if the accused man felt very little remorse over the deaths.
