Man Convicted of Murdering Husband

Man Convicted of Murdering Husband


In Britain's first instance of a domestic violence murder within a same-sex marriage, a man was convicted Thursday of stabbing his partner to death over an argument about a heating bill last November.

According to United Press International, "Michael Edwards (near right), 32, of Manchester's Chorlton-on-Medlock area, must serve at least 13 years before being eligible for parole, Manchester Crown Court Judge Anthony Gee said in Britain's first domestic violence murder within a same-sex marriage.

"Edwards admitted in court to stabbing his 35-year-old partner, John Edwards (far right), in the heart after arguing over turning the heating on and its cost."

Michael and John Edwards both worked at the Waldorf pub in Manchester, where they had been drinking the night of November 26, 2009. Michael stabbed John and initially told emergency responders that his partner had stabbed himself. John died one day later.
