Accused killer of gay man Gerry Edwards, claims he was sexually assaulted by victim

David Kilcullen on trial for the murder of one man and the attempted murder of his partner has claimed that the couple sexually assaulted him. Kilcullen, 46, told the Old Bailey yesterday that he was acting self-defence after being assaulted while he was asleep. He denies the charges of murder and attempted murder. He is accused of the fatal stabbing of Gerry Edwards (pictured), 59, and the attack on his partner, 56-year-old Chris Bevan. The couple lived in Bromley, south-east London. The attack took place in March at the couple's home in Page Heath Villas. Kilcullen alleges he had fallen asleep in their front room and woke to find Edwards performing oral sex on him while Bevan fondled him. Kilcullen said he went home but returned minutes after having a flashback about being raped by a man as a 14-year-old. Read more at UK Pink News.
