Mr Gay UK ‘stabbed man to death and cooked his thigh with herbs and olive oil’

The first winner of Mr Gay UK stabbed a man to death before carving a piece of flesh from his thigh, seasoning it with fresh herbs and cooking it in olive oil, a court heard.

Anthony Morley, 36, then attempted to eat a piece of Damian Oldfield’s flesh before walking to a nearby takeaway and telling staff he had killed someone, Leeds Crown Court was told.

Morley, who worked as a chef, also cut a piece of 33-year-old Mr Oldfield’s chest and nipple and left a bank card over the wound, it was claimed.

Andrew Stubbs, prosecuting, said the two men had been involved some kind of relationship in the past and that Morley was troubled by his sexuality.

He said the two men arranged to meet in Leeds on April 23 this year and later went back to Morley’s house, where the defendant prepared a meal for them both before the pair went upstairs to his bedroom.

It was alleged that sexual activity took place in the bedroom before Morley launched his attack on Mr Oldfield, cutting his throat and stabbing him numerous times.

Mr Stubbs said: “He continued to stab and stab and stab him until he died. Even when he was dead the attack continued until finally Mr Morley cut parts of flesh from the body.”

The court heard six pieces of cooked human flesh, identified as being from Mr Oldfield’s body, were found on a chopping board, while a further piece of flesh, which appeared to have been chewed, was found in a bin bag.

“From a chopping board on one of the kitchen units, six pieces of cooked flesh, which had been seasoned with fresh herbs and fried in olive oil were recovered. The flesh was human in origin,” Mr Stubbs said.

“A further piece of cooked flesh, which appears to have been chewed, was recovered from a bin bag in the kitchen.”

He added: “Having killed him upstairs, the defendant carved away a piece of flesh, took it downstairs to his kitchen, where he seasoned it, fried it and tried to eat it.”

Morley denies murdering Mr Oldfield and told police when he was arrested that someone had tried to rape him.

The trial continues.

“Homosexuality is not so much a type of sexual drive as it is the expression of deeper needs, the desire for self-degradation, or the seeking of a partner whom one can humiliate and degrade.”
