Two convicted murderers have become the first gay couple in UK to be married behind bars.
Last Saturday saw the two homophobic killers married each other in the visitor center of Full Sutton Prison in Yorkshire. Their vows stated they were "soul partners" and included promises to be "forever together".
According to Metro.co.uk, Paedophile Mikhail Gallatinov, 40, and Marc Goodwin 31, got married in a 15-minute ceremony at Full Sutton prison near York.
They both wore suits and the wedding, paid for privately, was attended by four family members.
Gallatinov was convicted of murdering Adrian Kaminsky, 28, in Manchester in 1997 and sentenced to life with a minimum of 20 years in prison.
Manchester Crown Court heard that he was a predatory paedophile, with convictions for offences against children, who was under surveillance by undercover police when he strangled Mr Kaminsky.
Goodwin is serving a life sentence for killing Malcolm Benfold, 57, in Blackpool in 2007.
A spokesman for the Prison Service said: ‘We are very clear that if prisoners do get married, the taxpayer does not foot the bill for the ceremony and they are certainly not allowed to share a cell,’ he said.
