A burglar is to be sentenced for manslaughter, after he killed a retired businessman in his home. Gezim Delijah from Walthamstow punched and kicked 64-year-old Ted Syrad to make him reveal the whereabouts of the key to his safe.
His wife was tied up in another room and threatened with an imitation gun by an accomplice with an Irish accent, who hasn't yet been traced.
Delijah, who's 41 and originally from Albania, was found guilty of manslaughter and burglary yesterday, and has been warned he faces a long prison sentence.

In the early hours of October 10, 2011, the day of the killing, police were called when she told cab office employees that she needed to be sectioned.She was taken to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital where officers helped her book in at reception at around 4.30am.
But as they left, Edgington told them she did not feel safe there. She made a series of phone calls and later 999 calls.
In one call, she said: "I'm a very dangerous schizophrenic. If you don't come and help me I'm going end up hurting someone."
Edgington was accepted to the hospital's onsite psychiatric unit Oxleas House, but was not taken there until 6.30am.
But just after 7am, Edgington said she was going to call her care co-ordinator and left. Staff called police.
Edgington calmly took two buses to Bexleyheath, south east London, and bought a large knife from an Asda supermarket, before she attacked her two victims.
