Salford Killer's Parents Threatened With Eviction
8 July 2013, 15:23
The parents of Salford killer Kiaran Stapleton have been officially threatened with eviction from their home in Ordsall after complaints about anti-social behaviour.
A judge has given Billie Jean and Anthony Stapleton a five-year Suspended Possession Order.
That means if there are more problems in the next five years at their house in Regent Square, Ordsall, the pair could be out on the streets.
The action comes a year after their son, Kiaran, was jailed for a minimum of 30 years for the murder of Indian student Anuj Bidve in Salford.
It was brought by the Stapleton's housing association, Salix Homes, whose director of customer and neighbourhood services, Sue Sutton, said:
"If Mr and Mrs Stapleton are found to be in breach of the Order, which includes engaging in unlawful or illegal activity in the property or within the locality, then Salix Homes and Salford City Council has the legal right to enforce the Possession Order, which could lead to eviction.
"This course of action was pursued after Mr and Mrs Stapleton's son Kiaran Stapleton was convicted of murdering student Anuj Bidve, as well as months of criminal activity and anti-social behaviour at the property and in the locality.
"We take all reports of anti-social behaviour extremely seriously, and we will always look to take action wherever necessary to protect customers living in our communities.
"I would urge anyone who is suffering from anti-social behaviour to come forward with information, so we can ensure our neighbourhoods remain safe places to live."
