The trial of Stephen Port has begun in London, with the 40-year-old accused of drugging and killing four men he met via dating websites.

The deaths all occurred between June 2014 and September 2015, reports the BBC. Prosecutors claim that Port, a special needs teacher, poisoned his dates with GHB, before dumping their bodies around a nearby church in east London; it's not clear if the men were sexually assaulted. Police initially believed the young men died of drug overdoses.

Port's alleged victims are Anthony Walgate, 23; Gabriel Kovari, 22; Daniel Whitworth, 21; and Jack Taylor, 25.

Walgate was a fashion student, Kovari a biking enthusiast, Whitworth was an aspiring chef, and Taylor worked as a forklift operator.
