Police have named a couple who were found stabbed to death in Solihull as officers wait to question a relative on suspicion of their murder.
The victims have been formally identified as Pin Chang aged 58 and his wife Quoi Chang aged 50.
Both were found stabbed to death at their home in Hermitage Road yesterday morning.
Police were called to the address just after 5am and a 23-year-old man remains under police guard in hospital in connection with the deaths.
Detective Inspector Martin Slevin is leading the double murder inquiry and said: “This a serious and devastating incident which has led to the deaths of a man and woman, and a young man continues to receive treatment.
“All three people are known to one another and at this stage we are not looking for anyone else in connection with the deaths.
“Forensic experts continue to work at the scene in order to work out exactly what happened. If anyone has information to help our inquiry but is yet to speak to police they are urged to come forward as soon as they can."
Chief superintendent Alex Murray, commander of Solihull Police, said: “This is a shocking and deeply upsetting incident in which two people have tragically lost their lives.
“Many people who live locally will undoubtedly have been concerned and distressed by today’s events and I’d like to reassure the community that we are doing everything possible to investigate this terrible crime.
“We have officers out in the neighbourhood to provide a visible reassurance and to offer support to anyone upset or concerned by what has happened. House to house enquiries will also be conducted."
