Kasim Shazada Khurum, 23, was sentenced to six years in jail at Birmingham Crown Court today. He was also ordered to register as a sex offender for 10 years after disturbing nine coffins during a drug-induced psychosis last November

A burglar who broke into a funeral parlour before 'lifting the lids of multiple coffins' and having sex with a corpse has been jailed for six years.

Kasim Shazada Khurum, 23, forced his way into a Central England Co-op Funeralcare parlour on November 11 last year before violating a dead body at around 1.40am.

A court heard how he lifted the lids of several coffins inside the funeral home on Walsall Road, in Great Barr, Birmingham, before selecting his victim. 

Another body was found face down while seven other coffins - including that of a baby - were also disturbed.

Police were alerted by the parlour's alarm and turned up to find the depraved pervert still at the scene where he was 'more concerned' about leaving his watch inside.

Khurum, who had been drinking vodka and smoking mamba, told officers: 'I bet you think I've been 'sh***ing them don't you?' 

Jobless Khurum, of Aston, Birmingham, who was previously sectioned, pleaded guilty to charges of penetration of a corpse and burglary in December.

Today he was told his offences 'offended all human sensibility' as he was sentenced to six years in jail at Birmingham Crown Court.

Khurum, wearing a black long-sleeved shirt and khaki trousers and sporting a goatee, wept in the dock as evidence was read out.

The victim's family also sobbed as they heard details of what Khurum did to the bodies of their loved ones.

Sentencing, Judge Melbourne Inman QC said: 'The offences you have committed offend all human sensibility.

'It would be difficult to think of a greater deprivation of the dignity of the dead other than that which you did to the victim.

'I have not been able to find any similar case.

'Your intention was to steal anything you could find of value inside. You broke into the office and then you went further into the building.

'There were nine bodies at rest in the chapel of rest and you set about disturbing all nine. One of the bodies at rest was only a mere baby.

'By the time you was arrested it was found all nine coffins had been disturbed.

'One of the lids had been left on the face of a person leaving a mark. Another female had been moved out of the coffin with her lower clothes removed.

'It was total degradation of the dead.'

Robert Price, prosecuting, said nine bodies were at the funeral home at the time and one lid was left open as relatives had attended that day to see them in the chapel of rest.

He told the court how three coffins had been 'disturbed or moved' while a funeral urn containing ashes had also been moved.

Mr Price said: 'Members of the family involved sought counselling and medication. It was the violation of a beautiful person.

'The family have
