A paranoid schizophrenic with "psychotic beliefs" stabbed his brother-in-law to death before driving him to a police station.

Sukhwinder Singh, 40, left the body of 39-year-old Harish Kumar in the front passenger seat, which he parked outside West Bromwich police station in the West Midlands.

Mr Kumar died from a single stab wound to the chest.

Today Singh admitted manslaughter by diminished responsibility at Wolverhampton Crown Court .

Prosecutor Nigel Power QC told the judge medical experts had said: "The defendant’s psychotic beliefs contributed to and explained the killing."

Judge Michael Challinor told Singh: "Following your plea you will be sentenced on June 29 and I am going to direct you are produced in good time that day for sentence.

"I have no doubt you will co-operate now you are being medicated."

Paying tribute to Mr Kumar, his family said he was "a great, yet very humble man".

In a statement issued through police, a relative said: "He was always there to help and he will be sadly missed – I just can’t believe that we’ve lost him."

Judge Challinor remanded Singh into custody until the date of his sentence at the same court.
