The European Court of Human Rights has ruled that the whole life tariff given to Peter Moore, pictured, the man who murdered four gay men for his sexual gratification in 1995, breaches his human rights.

The judges ruled by 16 to 1 that there had to be a possibility of release and review of the sentence in order for it to remain compatible with the European Convention on Human Rights.

Moore was jailed for life in 1996 for murdering four gay men:
Henry Roberts, a 56-year-old gay man who lived in Anglesey, who was stabbed to death in September 1995;

Edward Carthy, pictured, a 28-year-old man whom Moore met in a gay bar, who was stabbed to death in Clocaenog Forest in October 1995;
Keith Randles, a 49-year-old traffic manager; stabbed to death in November 1995 on the A5 road in Anglesey; and
Anthony Davies, 40, stabbed to death in Pensarn Beach, Abergele in December 1995.

Peter Moore, known as “The Man in Black”, owned and managed a number of cinemas in North Wales. His killing spree began in 1995 after he apparently became fixated with Jason Voorhees, the fictional murderer in the Friday 13th series of slasher movies. Mr Randles had begged to know why he was being attacked after Moore dragged him from his caravan in North Wales and started stabbing him. Moore had replied: “For fun”. Moore, who attacked more than 50 other men in what the judge at his murder trial described as ‘20 years of terror’, received four life sentences. Moore was dubbed the most dangerous man ever to set foot in Wales at his trial.
