A private tenant who stabbed his landlords to death has been convicted of murder.
Daniel Garcia unleashed what an Old Bailey trial heard described as a "brutal and frenzied attack" on Sonia Butron Calvi and Edgar Aguilera Daza in April 2020 during the first national lockdown.
Calvi and Daza were subletting rooms in a house in Stockwell , south London, to six Spanish-speaking tenants, including Garcia.
A BBC News report says Prosecutor Tom Little QC told the jury that when emergency services arrived the property could only be described as a bloodbath.
Daza was found in a pool of blood in the hallway and Calvi was lying face down in the kitchen.
The murder weapon was found in Garcia's bedroom.
Garcia admitted manslaughter but denied murder, claiming he was hearing voices at the time of the killings.
Jurors took just 45 minutes to find him guilty of two counts of murder.
Judge Mark Lucraft QC adjourned sentencing to a date to be fixed.
