This is the paedophile guilty of murdering his two younger sisters – one of whom was pregnant with his baby – after they told their parents he had been raping them for years.
Bayram Sahin, 21, shot dead Aysel Sahin, 20, who was five months’ pregnant, and Hatice Sahin, 16, near their home in the village of Cayustu in the Dinar district of western-central Turkey’s Afyonkarahisar Province.
Sahin took his sisters in an empty house in a forest near the village and shot them both in the head after they told their parents he had been forcing them to have sex with him for four years.

Police launched an investigation after the sisters’ bodies were found and interviewed their father, Nihat Sahin, and their two elder brothers.
Bayram Sahin broke down under questioning and told police he had killed his sisters after they had told their parents what had been going on.
The pistol he had shot them with was subsequently found buried in the ground 700 metres (2,296 ft) from the house.
The bodies of the sisters were taken to the Dinar State Hospital for post-mortems which revealed that Aysel Sahin had been five months pregnant with her brother’s baby.
Police say the pregnancy was what finally led the sisters to tell their parents that their brother had been raping and sexually abusing them for four years.
Sahin has already appeared in court where he was found guilty of murder and sent to prison. A further hearing will be held to determine sentencing.
The sisters’ devastated mother, Elif Sahin, was so devastated by the tragic events to hit her family that she was too unwell to attend the girls’ joint funeral in the village.
The Dinar district was hit by a major earthquake in 1995 when 90 people were killed, more than 200 injured and nearly 6,000 homes damaged.
