A 26-year-old Bradford man who stabbed his pregnant wife to death has pleaded guilty this afternoon (Fri) to charges of murder and child destruction.

Tariq Khan, of Clarendon Court, Manningham, appeared before a judge at Bradford Crown Court for a brief hearing and entered his guilty pleas before the Recorder of Bradford Judge Roger Thomas QC.

Khan was arrested in June after killing his wife Nadia, 24.

She is understood to have been six-months pregnant when she was stabbed to death at her home in Holker Street, Manningham.

Khan, who had separated from her shortly before the killing, was facing deportation proceedings at the time of the murder.

Today (Fri) Khan pleaded guilty to murder and a charge of child destruction relating to the unborn infant.

He also admitted assaulting his wife about a month before the murder.

Judge Thomas remanded Khan back into custody until his sentence hearing on October 16, but he told the defendant through an interpreter that he faced a life sentence.
