The court heard that, after the sexual activity, Gurney pulled out a pair of scissors and twice stabbed the man in the neck.

Prosecutor Nicola Moore told the court: “The complainant described the atmosphere as a little frosty as they walked back to his car.

“I stabbed him in the neck with a pair of scissors; I meant to kill him, it’s intentional.”

Gurney handed himself into police on the night of the incident.

He reportedly told an officer at Euston Street Police station in Leicester: “I stabbed him in the neck with a pair of scissors; I meant to kill him, it’s intentional.”

Moore told the court that Gurney had had thoughts of killing another person on a number of occasions previously.

In a diary entry in August 2017, Gurney reportedly wrote: “Every day I have thoughts of killing someone. It doesn’t matter who.”

The trial continues.
