A killer who was given two life terms for murdering a vicar and a pensioner has died in the cage.
Stephen Farrow, 58, was sentenced at Bristol Crown Court in 2012 after battering Betty Yates, 77, with her own walking stick before taking a knife to her neck and face four times.
He would then go on to claim the life of 59-year-old Rev John Suddard, whose body he would cover in gay porn DVDs in a weird effort to “spoil his reputation”.

The 6ft 4" man’s trial took a week and was at the end of it found guilty of a double murder.
On Monday (August 21), he died inside HMP Frankland in Durham.
While the prison service is yet to give mention of the cause of death, it did note: "HMP Frankland prisoner Stephen Farrow died on 21 August.
"As with all deaths in custody, the Prisons and Probation Ombudsman will investigate."
Before he went on his savage killing spree, he broke into a home in Thornbury, Gloucestershire.
The residents of the property were away at the time, but he left a heart-stopping note pinned up with two knives that read: "Be thankful you did not come back or we would have killed you Christian scum. I f****** hate God."
Then, in January, he went to Bewdley in Worcestershire, where he killed Betty, returning a month later to kill Rev. Suddard.
Farrow claimed he was abused by a priest as a child, with reports claiming he had intended to crucify the reverend.
He was later arrested in Folkstone, Kent.
