A man has been jailed for murdering an elderly Italian couple in a "brutal and savage attack".

Guiseppe Massaro, 80, and his wife, Caterina, 77, were found dead at a property in Woden Road, Heath Town, Wolverhampton, in April 2011.

Polish national Ireneusz Bartnowski, 22, of no fixed address, who denied the charges, was convicted of the murders at Wolverhampton Crown Court.

Mr Massaro's sister Lena Masdrobuono spoke after the verdict. She said "they didn't deserve what happened to them".
