Gay Man Gets Life in Prison

Gay Man Gets Life in Prison


A gay man in Manchester, England, who stabbed his partner to death, was sentenced to life in prison on Thursday.

Michael Edwards must serve 13 years before being eligible for parole, Manchester Crown Court judge Anthony Gee decided in Britain's first domestic-violence murder within a same-sex marriage.

Edwards admitted in court he stabbed his partner, John Edwards, in the heart after arguing about their utility bill and whether to turn on the heat, United Press International reported.

The couple both worked at Manchester's Waldorf pub and were drinking at the pub before the murder took place.

Michael Edwards later admitted he intended to cause his partner serious harm but did not intend to kill him.
