A FRIEND of murdered teenager Simon Everitt today described how she told one of the accused he was “twisted” after watching a horror film with him.

Carol Day told Norwich Crown Court she had watched Brit horror spoof Severance with Jonathan Clarke, who denies murder.

After one scene in which a character is tied to a tree and burnt alive Clarke remarked: “Wouldn't it be wicked to do that to someone in real life.”

Miss Day told the court: “I was disgusted and told him he was twisted.”

Earlier she described how Mr Everitt, 17, Clarke and fellow defendant Jimi-Lee Stewart had all been in a relationship with a girl called Fiona Statham.

Shortly before he died in June 2008 Mr Everitt told Miss Day: “I love her but she'll do to me what she did to Jonathan Clarke.”

Mr Everitt's body was found in Mautby woods, near Yarmouth. He had been tied to a tree, doused in petrol and set on fire.

The 17-year-old's decomposed body was found dumped in a swamp after he was apparently murdered in revenge for a tangled love affair.

Police established the retribution killing had been carried out in a manner which almost exactly replicated the film scene.

Clarke, from Telford, Stewart of Nelson Road Central, Yarmouth and Maria Chandler of Lancaster Road, Yarmouth all deny murder. The case continues.
