Her mother Julie Sahin, 50, and a family friend, Casey Wilson, 20, ran upstairsand tried to intervene but were both stabbed, Mrs Sahin fatally.

Gol, of Ireton Court in Thame, Oxfordshire, denied two counts of murder and oneof attempted murder on September 4 last year but was convicted unanimously by ajury at Oxford Crown Court.

Dafydd Enoch, prosecuting, told the court: "He was clearly unhappy.The marriage was clearly unhappy. He was clearly homesick. But none of this caneven begin to explain the cold acts of murder in which he indulged: senselessslaughter born out of premeditated ruthless violence."
