Father, 52, pleads guilty to murdering NHS nurse and her six- and four-year-old children

Triple murderer Saju Chelavalel, 52, pleaded guilty at Northampton Crown Court to the murders of National Health Service nurse Anju Ashok and her children, Jeeva Saju, six, and Janvi Saju, four.

The two children died after being found in serious condition on a property in Kettering, Northamptonshire, on December 15 last year with their mother.

Later, Chelavalel was arrested by police at the same house after being called to report that three people had been injured.

A post-mortem coroner’s examination at Leicester Royal Infirmary concluded that all three died of asphyxiation, but at the start of inquests into their deaths, a coroner said the children’s medical cause of death had been strangulation, while the Ms. Ashok died of suffocation.

Three days later, Northamptonshire Police detectives charged Chelavalel, 52, with three counts of murder.
