Meat cleaver killer Mohammed Naeem jailed for Bradford murder
A man has been jailed for life for killing a Bradford takeaway worker with a meat cleaver in a row over a debt.
Mohammed Naeem was convicted of murdering Amjad Hussain, 31, at a trial at Bradford Crown Court.
Mr Hussain died from a severe neck injury at his home in Undercliffe in January. The court heard Naeem started a fire to try to cover up the crime.
Naeem, 33, of Westfield Terrace, Undercliffe, was told he would serve at least 25 years in prison.
The court heard Mr Hussain had lent Naeem money and was killed when he asked for it back.
Following Tuesday's verdict, Mr Hussain's widow said: "He lent this man money in good faith for what he was told was a good cause and was then betrayed and murdered in the most callous way I can imagine."
