A man in a British hotel stabbed two colleagues to death following infatuation with one of them and sexual jealousy. However, instead of running away, he hid inside the base of a bed in the murder room for two days.

Attila Ban, the Heathrow hotel receptionist, tried to escape responsibility by attempting suicide, then by pretending he was unable to speak due to shock, and lastly by claiming he remembered nothing. He has been found guilty and now faces jail, The Independent reported Friday.

The 32-year-old Hungarian failed to evade justice at the Old Bailey as he was found guilty of murdering Tibor Vass and Alice Adams, both 20. He will be sentenced at a later date.

The court heard his crime was born out of the infatuation which he developed for Vass despite knowing that the latter was not gay.
