The man accused of murdering a retired school teacher in Worcestershire has been described in court as a very dark person.
Stephen Farrow is on trial for the murder of Betty Yates, who was killed in her home in Bewdley and Reverend John Suddards from Gloucestershire. A forensic psychiatrist told the court that Farrow showed psychopathic characteristics.
He said Farrow had been an uncontrollable child who had shot a swan with an air gun and killed other people's pets.
Farrow denies murdering Reverend Suddards but admits his manslaughter on the grounds of diminished responsibility. He denies the murder of Betty Yates. The trial continues
