Gay miner killed in self defence, court told

A FORMER Maltby miner was killed by his gay lover, who only hours before had announced “Someone's going to die tonight,” a jury heard.

Callum Adams, of Balby, Doncaster, is alleged to have smothered his partner Kevan Worrall to death upstairs at The Seven Stars pub in Greengates, Bradford, then fled to London with the takings.

Adams (39), denies murdering Mr Worrall, a former miner at Maltby Colliery, on September 13 last year.

Prosecutor Paul Reid told Bradford Crown Court that Adams maintains he killed his partner in reasonable self defence, or that he was provoked into doing what he did, or a combination of both.

Mr Reid said Adams had pleaded guilty to stealing the £1,000 pub takings and Mr Worrall’s mobile phone and laptop computer.

The trial continues.
