FACTFILE

 

27th May 2002, Alan Stead Had a hidden room built in his garage, to hide his computer game counterfeiting operation. On this fateful day he locked his wife in the room and hen set fire to the house.


Friday 13th February 2009,  Prosecutors alleged Stead wanted to kill his wife because she had told him she wanted a divorce.

Stead, was jailed for life with a minimum term of 25 years.  Sentencing him, Mr Justice Astill said, Stead planned his wife's murder "step-by-step", luring her into the computer room and locking her in before starting the fire.
"You piled lie upon lie and and said you had not been able to rescue her," he said.
"You lived that lie for years and it was only those who suspected you from the beginning that enabled justice to be done. "Your cruelty has shown no bounds."
