The thug had stabbed Mr Javed more than 15 times in a case of mistaken identity as he slept in the front room of his grandmother’s home in Small Heath, Birmingham.
He then turned the ten inch knife on the Mr Javed’s grandmother as she tried to intervene and left her to die at the property having suffered more than 25 stab wounds.

After ditching his blood-soaked clothes, Ahmed then called a taxi to collect him from nearby adventure centre, the Ackers Trust, and take him to a hostel in nearby Newtown.
Officers arrested him later that evening after tracing him to a hospital in Stoke-on-Trent via a mobile phone he had been using during the day.
A court heard how Ahmed knew Mr Javed’s brother, Islam, and that he may have been the intended victim.
He had ordered a haul of knives from the internet using his brother’s ID before travelling from his home in Stoke-on-Trent to Birmingham where he checked into a hostel.
Ahmed went on trial accused of murder, attempted murder, wounding with intent, possessing an offensive weapon and affray at Birmingham Crown Court.
He smirked in the dock as he was found guilty of all charges by a jury on Thursday afternoon.
After suffering a slash wound to his arm, Ahmed ditched his blade in the roof guttering before jumping into a neighbour’s garden.
His blood was later found on fence panels as he stumbled into another house, grabbing a separate knife from the kitchen.

After the case, Detective Inspector Harry Harrison, from West Midlands Police, said: ‘This was a pre-meditated attack, with Ahmed intent on killing someone that day by taking a knife to the home of an elderly lady.
‘Ahmed claimed that he was looking for someone at the address and when he couldn’t find who he was looking for, he attacked Riasat’s grandson while he was sleeping, leaving him with life changing injuries.
‘He then went on to carry out a horrifying attack on a defenceless elderly lady.
‘This was a horrendous and violent attack and although no sentence will ever compensate for what Ahmed has caused this family.
‘I hope they can find some closure in that justice has been served today.’
