Tributes to mum and daughter 'killed by schizophrenic son'

The family of two women found stabbed to death inside their north London home have paid tribute to the 'selfless and loving' pair.

Hannah Cohen, 33 and her mother, Leah, 66, were found by police shortly after they were called to the family home in Golders Green, at 8.50pm on Friday night.

Following a public appeal, Joshua Cohen, 27, was yesterday arrested on suspicion of the double murders of his mother and sister at their £1.5million home in Golders Green Crescent, having been spotted by a member of the public at a nearby park.
