A man who had sex with a corpse in a funeral home has been jailed for six years.

Kasim Khuram, of Aston, Birmingham, admitted burglary and sexual penetration of a corpse following a break-in at a funeral parlour in Great Barr in November.

He was also ordered to register as a sex offender for 10 years after disturbing nine coffins during a drug induced psychosis last November. 

Sentencing judge Melbourne Inman QC told 23-year-old Khuram: “The offences that you have committed offend all human sensitivity.

“I am not aware of – and nor have I been able to find – any similar case. It would be difficult to think of a greater depravation of the dignity of the dead.”

DCI John Askew, from West Midlands Police CID, said: “This is an horrendous and disturbing act. Our thoughts remain with all those who have been affected.”
