A gay man who stabbed his ‘husband’ to death has been convicted of Britain’s first ever domestic violence murder within a gay marriage.

Michael Edwards, 32, knifed his 35-year-old partner John Edwards in the heart in the days after their second wedding anniversary following an argument over a heating bill.

The pair – both barmen – were one of 8,728 gay couples who married in 2007 two years after civil partnership were allowed in the UK under the Civil Partnership Act.
