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.'
