Eurydice Dixon's killer Jaymes Todd jailed for life for her rape and murder

Eurydice Dixon's killer Jaymes Todd jailed for life for her rape and murder Jaymes Todd is ordered to serve a minimum of 35 years in prison for raping and murdering the 22-year-old comedian in a Melbourne park last year, with the sentencing judge saying the 20-year-old has "very limited" prospects of rehabilitation. He said he was satisfied Todd had intended to kill Ms Dixon. "You waited until Eurydice was well into the dark reaches of Princes Park [before attacking her]," he said. The court heard Todd turned himself in to police after a friend saw him on police-issued CCTV but gave detectives three different versions of what happened that night during interviews.

Jurors were not told about Matovu’s past connection with former chef Port, 44, from Barking, east London, who had also targeted victims through Grindr and killed four of them with GHB overdoses.

Matovu was jailed for life with a minimum term of 31 years by Judge Anne Molyneux QC.

Co-defendant Dunbar was sentenced to 18 years in jail with five on extended licence for his role in the “calculated” scheme to drug and steal from men they met through Grindr.

The judge told the pair: “All were victims of your total lack of respect and callous behaviour. You calculated they would be too embarrassed to report the full extent of what happened to them.

“They showed dignity and courage in giving evidence in the trial.”

She told Matovu: “You had already rendered five men unconscious using G(HB). You were an experienced poisoner and were aware of the dangers of the drug.

“You knew as far back as 2015 that it could be used to take advantage of others. You knew it could be life-threatening.

“You are a highly dangerous predator.”

Earlier, Mr Michel’s ex-wife, Diane Michels, said losing him was “the worst kind of nightmare”, leaving her to bring up their three children.

Reading a statement in court, she said: “My view of the world has changed. I was always a glass half-full type of person. Now I view people with distrust and am wary of my ability to judge others accurately.

“This has been exacerbated by the callous disregard for Eric’s life that has been displayed in court by the defendants. I never imagined people could be so wicked and my fear and anxiety for the safety of those I care for is now unimaginable.”

“We have to live with the knowledge the last person Eric saw was the person who took his life.

“Someone who spent his time stealing from him and listening to the radio – had he called an ambulance Eric May still be here. That haunts us all and will continue to do so forever.”

Son Josh Michels, 24, said the impact of losing his father was “unreal”.

He said: “I live in regret that I didn’t see my dad every single minute of every single day.

“We will do him proud, as he always used to tell us.”

Sam Michels, 21, was living with his father and was at home the night he was killed.

On Matovu’s lack of remorse, he said that hearing the defendant accuse his father of rape as part of his defence in court was “soul-destroying”.

He said: “You have taken away all the lessons my dad had yet to teach me and all the experiences he deserved as a father – like meeting his grandchildren and walking his daughter down the aisle.

“To me, my dad had the answers to everything and was always the first person I would go to for advice.

“He was everything to me and I’m completely and utterly lost without him.”

Mr Michels’ 15-year-old daughter, who found his body, said: “At 14 I never expected to walk into my own father’s house and find him lying dead in his bed. I would never want anyone to experience that.

“My dad was my best friend as well as my father, I could literally talk to him about anything, so it’s really hard to accept that I have lost both.”

Mitigating, Louise Sweet QC said Matovu was “truly sorry” for the death of Mr Michels and wished to “turn the clock back”.

Matovu had a troubled upbringing and had sought help with gender realignment, having identified as female since the age of eight, the court heard.

Ms Sweet said: “It was through her involvement in the gay social scene she came into contact with drugs and these drugs being used in sexual encounters and her addiction to drugs developed and became increasingly heavy when she was in a relationship with Dunbar.”

Matovu, of Southwark, south London, was convicted of six counts of administering a noxious substance, seven thefts, six counts of having articles for fraud, murder, assault by penetration, assault occasioning actual bodily harm and possessing GBL drugs.

Dunbar, of Forest Gate, east London, was found guilty of three counts of administering a noxious substance, five thefts, six counts of having articles for fraud, two frauds, assault by penetration, assault occasioning actual bodily harm, and dishonestly retaining wrongful credit.

In 2016, Port was handed a whole life term for raping and murdering four young men and dumping their bodies near his home in Barking between 2014 and 2015.

Following Port’s trial, Matovu pleaded guilty to supplying mephedrone and GHB and offering to supply GHB, but denied knowing what Port planned to do with it.

Stephen Port’s ex-drug dealer given life sentence for murdering James Bond actor

Stephen Port’s ex-drug dealer given life sentence for murdering James Bond actor The ex-drug dealer of serial killer Stephen Port was given a life sentence with at least 31 years behind bars for murdering a former Bond actor. Gerald Matovu, 26, hooked up with Eric Michels, 54, via Grindr in August last year.

Detective Inspector Mark Richards, of Scotland Yard, said: “Today’s sentencing marks the end of a long and complex police investigation and the nature of Matovu and Dunbar’s crimes mean their lengthy jail terms are more than justified.

“The pair had a well-rehearsed plan to take advantage of men they met through social networking sites and apps such as Grindr to steal their property. This was their overwhelming motive, rather than sexual assault. Matovu was described in evidence as a hustler, a liar and a thief – apt words.

“Their method in the majority of cases was to drug their victim with enough GBL to render them unconscious so they could then search their homes, selecting items of interest and photographing bank cards and personal documents for subsequent fraudulent use. They did this at their leisure, sometimes spending hours at an address.

“But Mr Michels was different – Matovu gave him a fatal dose of GBL. Despicably, while Mr Michels lay dead or dying, Matovu raided his address of many of his belongings, leaving his devastated family to find his body the following day.

“Just three days later Matovu and Dunbar targeted another man at Dunbar’s flat. When he was no longer of use to them, it is suspected they dragged his prone naked body out into the street and abandoned him on a pile of rubbish bags.

“Attending officers were quickly able to join those two events together, and enquiries then revealed a whole host of other victims. Matovu and Dunbar had done very little to cover their tracks, their only focus moving onto their next victim and what else they could steal. There is every chance there are more victims out there – please have the confidence to come forward and report this, or any similar crime to us.”
