Family members of lovely woman were shocked to enter her home and fund her head nearly cut off near her sleeping children, according to police in the United Kingdom.

The killer admitted to murdering her sister in their home in Luton.

During the fourth attempt to start the murder trial for Sabah Khan, 27, of Overstone Road, she entered a guilty plea at the Old Bailey.

Officers from the Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire, and Hertfordshire Major Crime Units have been investigating the murder after 34-year-old Saima Khan was found dead.

Detective Chief Inspector Adam Gallop, the senior investigating officer, said: “This is any family’s worst nightmare. It is beyond comprehension for the parents to hear that one daughter has brutally murdered another. It has been a horrendous ordeal for them and we are pleased that we have received the guilty plea.

“We continue to support the family, I’m not sure there can ever really be a closure, but what I do hope is that after sentencing they can hear what happened that night and start to move forward.”

Sabah will be sentenced at the Old Bailey on Thursday.

According to the police investigation, Sabah lived in the same home of her married sister.

One day, when all their family members were at a funeral of a relative, Sabah grabbed a knife and slit the throat of Saima.

Sabah then chopped off Saima’s hands.

Saima’s four young children were asleep in the home when the gruesome murder took place.

Sabah then left the home.

When Saima’s family returned from the funeral, they were shocked to find the victim lying in a pool of blood.

Her head was nearly cut off and her severed hands were nearby.

Police have not released the motive for the attack.
