A homophobic killer was told he may never be released from jail as he was sentenced to 32 years in prison.

David Kilcullen, 46, stabbed housebound Gerald Edwards, 59, to death and tried to murder his partner, Christopher Bevan, 56, at their home in Page Heath Villas, Bickley. An Old Bailey jury convicted him of murder and attempted murder. The Common Serjeant of London, Judge Brian Barker, jailed him for life on December 16, ordering that he serve a minimum of 32 years.

He told smirking Kilcullen: "In drink, you showed your victims no mercy that night and your behaviour defies belief.

"It may well be that you will spend the rest of your life in custody."

Kilcullen forced both victims to the floor before knifing Mr Edwards in the heart.
