I tell the story of Kenneth Bill and John Hay in this episode.
On March 15, 2012, Kenneth lured John to his unit at Meltham Mills Industrial Estate on the pretence of him pricing up some building work.
Once there, Kenneth beat John to death inside the unit, burned his body and disposed of the ashes at a local recycling centre.
Kenneth was in love with Carol Hay, John's husband, and wanted him out of the picture so that he could pursue a relationship with her.
Judge Peter Benson handed Kenneth a life sentence on September 21, 2012, with a minimum term of 22 years.
