Police believe a burglar murdered two nursing home residents because he found nothing to steal

Two nursing home residents were murdered by a teenage burglar possibly because "he lost his temper when faced with having to leave empty-handed," according this report in the British Telegraph. One of the women, aged 56, was beaten to death, and the other, age 72, was smothered with her bedclothes. Both women, both of whom were disabled and required full time care, were also found partially dressed. The teenager, who admitted two charges of murder, will be sentenced on July 30.
