A man is set to appear in court, facing charges for the murder of two men in Leeds.
Robert Jean, 46 years old, stands accused of the killings of Abdullah Mirzada, 53, and Khaja Raisoddin Mohammed, 65.
He is scheduled to make his appearance at Leeds Magistrates Court tomorrow.
All three men resided at the same address in Hill Top Mount, Harehills.
The two victims were discovered with fatal injuries after the police received a call to Back Hill Top Avenue, Harehills, shortly after 11 am on Saturday, September 30.
Mr Mirzada was declared deceased at the scene, while Mr Mohammed passed away in the hospital a short time later.
Detectives from the West Yorkshire Police Homicide and Major Enquiry Team continue to probe the incident, with specialist family liaison officers providing support to the victims’ families.
A 47-year-old man, who was also apprehended on suspicion of murder in connection to the incident, has since been released without charge and will face no further action.
A scene is still cordoned off at the address in Hill Top Mount for ongoing forensic examinations.
A statement from the family of Abdullah Mirzada:
“Abdullah has always worked since he came to the UK in 2002. He never had any ‘cross’ words with anyone. Abdullah was a gentle and kind man. If he ever got into a disagreement with another he would walk away. We just cannot get this right in our minds.”
A statement from the family of Khaja Raisoddin Mohammed:
“Dad was a man of good character. He liked to pray and go to the mosque. He never got into trouble, so we cannot understand why this has happened. We cannot console ourselves; we are unsettled.”
