Massaro murder: 'Justice has been done today'

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 and sentenced to a minimum of 34 years.

Det Supt Keith Wilson of West Midlands Police paid tribute to the "immense family" and said Bartnowski "has plenty of time to contemplate the pain and suffering he has caused".
