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.
