Det Chief Insp John Askew from force CID, said: “This is an horrendous and disturbing act.
“Our thoughts remain with all those who have been affected by this crime.” Senior CPS prosecutor Baljinder Kaur , said: “This is an unusual case and it is difficult to imagine a more distressing violation of a loved one.
“On the strength of the case built by the police and CPS the defendant ultimately pleaded guilty and will now have to face the consequences.
“Our thoughts are with the families of the deceased.”
A spokesperson from Central England Co-operative said: “Our primary concern is for the families we serve and the welfare of our funeral colleagues who have all been deeply affected by this incredibly disturbing and unprecedented event. “The security measures at Great Barr are such that the alarm alerted the police, who were thankfully able to apprehend the suspect at the scene.
“We would like to thank the West Midlands Police for their care and assistance and we will work to support them in any way possible.
