Former diplomat admits killing LGBT activist


A former Uruguay diplomat has admitted stabbing LGBT activist Julian Aubrey to death. Enrique Facelli, 49, attacked Aubrey in his West Kensington home following a “long-standing” dispute between the two neighbors, reports Press Association. Facelli was charged earlier this year and was set to go on trial at the Old Bailey, but the case was qualified as a manslaughter because of the diminished responsibility. Prosecutor Tom Little QC said that the lesser charge had been accepted after two psychiatric reports were made available. Aubrey, 55, worked as a counsellor with victims of sexual abuse and even was recognized by British royals for it. An arrest was made at Clapham Junction earlier this month after a man unleashed a horrifying stream of anti-gay abuse and threats at people coming back from Brighton and Hove Pride.
