The killer of Bradford pizza chef Amjad Hussain has been jailed for life. Mohammed Hussain was sentenced at Bradford Crown Court and was told he must serve a minimum of 25 years behind bars.
The jury was told Naeem committed the murder because Mr Hussain, a pizza chef at the Four Seasons takeaway in Burley-in-Wharfedale, was threatening to tell the killer’s wife and father-in-law about a £1,000 loan Naeem had not repaid.
A 25-year-old man has been released on police bail pending further enquiries.
A 26-year-old woman and 32-year-old man remain under arrest in police custody.
