Sentencing of fraudulent cancer cure pair

A couple who falsely claimed they could cure cancer to defraud and abuse their victims are due to be sentenced today.

Reginald Gill, 77, and his wife Leila, 35, from Cwmduad, Carmarthenshire were found guilty of sexual assault and fraud in February.

Mr Gill - who has no medical qualifications - deliberately misdiagnosed two women with cancer and used an electric probe he claimed could cure it to sexually assault them.

He has avoided jail time twice after complaining of illness at previous sentencing hearings. Gill had been warned to expect a jail term.

Their sentences will be handed down at Swansea Crown Court.
