They found the body of 71-year-old Onees Khatoon, who had been strangled with an electrical cable.

Butt told police he had an argument with his mother and she threatened to throw him out of the house.

Det Chief Insp Noel McHugh said: "This is a tragic case for everyone connected with the family. Onees had limited mobility due to a number of quite serious health issues including heart problems and diabetes.

"Distressingly, the person she raised and who was supposed to be taking care of her in old age has turned on her with fatal consequences. She was in no position to defend herself.”
