A man burgled a flat in Norwich, just days after the bodies of a couple he knew were discovered inside the property.
Ashley Bindley, 25, broke into the flat in Providence Place on 4 June last year, three days after the bodies of 19-year-old Gaynor Robinson and 23-year-old Billy Applegate were found inside.
Bindley smashed a side window to break into the property, stealing a bank card, tobacco, children’s trainers, clothes, Playstation 3, LG TV and a child’s money box.
The defendant was arrested after he was seen with a bank card belonging to Gaynor.
Bindley, of St Leonards Road, Norwich, pleaded guilty to burglary and appeared at the city’s crown court on Thursday (9 January 2020) and was sentenced to 25 months imprisonment.
The deaths were not suspicious and inquests are due to take place in February.
