A man in Pennsylvania confessed to his children that he killed his wife and mother in 2020 and now a judge has sentenced him to 23 to 60 years in state prison, according to authorities.

In August 2020, Iqbal Singh, 66, called police to report the murder, officials said.

Officers arrived at the home in Delaware County and found Singh covered in blood and suffering from self-inflicted stab wounds. He was taken to a nearby hospital, court documents stated.

When searching the house, police found Nasib Kaur lying unresponsive, with her throat slit on the home’s first floor.

On the second floor, officers found Jaspal Kaur with similar wounds. Both women were pronounced dead at the scene, authorities said.

When talking with police, Singh’s son and daughter said they tried to call their dad and mom on their cell phones early that morning, but neither of them answered.

The children then called their parents’ home phone, which Singh answered and told them he had killed the two women and told them to “call the police to come get me,” The Philadelphia Inquirer reported.

On Sept. 7, Singh pleaded guilty to third-degree murder and aggravated assault before Delaware County Court Judge George Green, officials said.

The plea deal was negotiated with prosecutors to spare Singh from a potential conviction for first-degree murder and a mandatory life sentence. The Inquirer reported Singh’s children made this request to prosecutors since they are hoping to be able to see him again one day, outside of a jail cell.

First Assistant District Attorney Tanner Rouse told The Inquirer, “The family impressed upon us that the loss of their father, while understandable, only made them victims all over again. They were wonderful, respectful people, and we felt this offer would grant them some peace while also upholding our obligation to public safety.”

During the sentencing hearing, Singh told the judge he has bipolar disorder, which he did not receive treatment for until after he was arrested for the murders of his wife and mother. He told the judge he would not have killed the women if he had been well, officials said.
