Farhad Mahmud, Danai Muhammadi and Emma Smith
by Dan Bloom
A “sick” car salesman has been found guilty of murdering his estranged wife, toddler son and father-in-law in a horrific arson attack.
Danai Muhammadi, 24, drove 200 miles to his in-laws’ Chatham home and used a garden sprayer to pump petrol through the letterbox in a spite-fuelled attack.
A jury at Maidstone Crown Court this afternoon found Muhammadi guilty of three counts of murder and two of attempted murder.
His friend, Maidstone nightclub bouncer Farhad Mahmud, 35, was found guilty of the same charges after a six-week trial.
Muhammadi’s girlfriend – unemployed Emma Smith, 21, of The Barley Lea, Coventry – was found guilty of three counts of manslaughter by 10-2 majorities. Smith was cleared of two counts of attempted murder.
