Stephen Farrow: John Suddards and Betty Yates murderer jailed for life


Homeless drifter Stephen Farrow has been found guilty of the murders of a vicar and a retired teacher.

Farrow, 48, who was obsessed with religion, had admitted the manslaughter of the Rev John Suddards, 59, in Thornbury, near Bristol, but denied his murder.

He denied stabbing Betty Yates, 77, at her home, in Worcestershire.

At Bristol Crown Court, Mr Justice Field sentenced Farrow to serve the rest of his life in prison.
