Convicted murderers Mikhail Gallatinov and Marc Goodwin have become to first same-sex couple in the UK to be married in prison
Two convicted killers have become the first same-sex couple in the UK to be married in prison, reports the Independent.
Mikhail Gallatinov (above left) is a convicted pedophile serving a life sentence for the murder of Adrian Kaminsky. Marc Goodwin (above right) was sentenced to life in 2007 for a homophobic murder that was described as part of a “gay-bashing spree."
Under the Marriage Act 1983, all prisoners have the right to marry while being detained.
Reacting to the news, Peter Benfold, whose brother was murdered by Goodwin, said:
“Hopefully they will strangle each other. It’s going to be terrible when they’re set free, given they’re both killers and one is a strangler and pedophile. It could be double trouble. It’s a marriage made in hell.”
40-year-old Gallatinov can be considered for parole next year.
