Vicar's death: Characteristics of a psychopath
THE consultant forensic psychiatrist who assessed the man accused of killing the Reverend John Suddards and retired teacher Betty Yates said that defendant Stephen Farrow had demonstrated many of the characteristics of a psychopath.
Farrow, 48, of no fixed address, denies two counts of murder but admitted Mr Suddards' manslaughter on the grounds of diminished responsibility.
Dr Tim Rogers told the court that when he tried to speak to Farrow about the murder of Mrs Yates he would refuse to talk about her.
Dr Alan Lillywhite, a consultant forensic psychiatrist, also assessed Farrow after he was transferred to Broadmoor Hospital from Long Lartin Prison in August.
