A HOTEL receptionist who hid under a bed at a murder scene for two days after killing two colleagues is facing a double life sentence.
Atilla Ban, 32, was found guilty of the murders of Tibor Vass and Alice Adams, from Iver Heath, both 20, by an Old Bailey jury today (Wednesday).
Hungarian-born Ban stabbed Mr Vass twice and Miss Adams was knifed 22 times at the Radisson Edwardian Hotel at Heathrow.
He dumped Miss Adams' body in the living room with a cushion over her face before ripping off Mr Vass's clothes and leaving him naked and posed on a double bed.
He then made a primitive survival kit and crawled inside the divan for two days as a pathologist carried out an examination and detectives scoured the room for clues.
He was remanded in custody ahead of sentencing on August 17.
Judge Gerald Gordon said: 'The sentence for murder is always life imprisonment, but the matter that remains and can't be decided today is the minimum term the defendant has to serve until his release can be considered by the parole board.'
