4 October 2012 Last updated at 20:23 BST

A man accused of murdering a vicar and retired teacher carried out a burglary where a death threat to "Christian scum" was left, a court has heard.

Stephen Farrow, 48, denies murdering 77-year-old Betty Yates and the Reverend John Suddards, but he has admitted to the manslaughter of the clergyman on the grounds of diminished responsibility.

The note was read out in court: "Be thankful you did not come back or we would have killed you Christian scum. I...hate God."
