A judge told sheet metal worker, David Folley, 35: “You sliced his throat open as if you were killing an animal,” as he ruled that he must remain behind bars until he is at least 61 years old.
Sheet metal worker David Folley, 35, was convicted of murdering 36 year-old Inderjit Singh – known as ‘Raj’ to friends – in the early hours of Christmas Day 2010 and a judge at Croydon Crown Cout ordered that he must serve a minimum of 26 years behind bars before he can even be considered for parole. The court was told that the confused victim, described as a ‘quiet, calm, gentle, fun-loving man’ was looking for a pal’s address, but ended up outside Folley’s front door in Calshot Walk, Bedford and was stabbed to death on the landing. Above his body was an ominous sign the defendant had placed above his front door, which read: ‘Danger of Death. Keep Out.’ Police later found a bnp flyer displayed in the defendant's flat and seized a t-shirt, with the words ‘F*** off. We’re full’.
“Mr Singh had lost his way that evening, having come from a late-night carol service at his local church and tragically he ended up on your landing, somewhat the worse for wear,” said the Croydon Recorder, Judge Warwick McKinnon.
During the hearing Folley confirmed his bnp sympathies from the witness box, telling jurors: “I believe you should put British people first.” Officers seized three crossbows from his unkempt flat and a variety of other weapons, including baseball bats, swords and a rifle.
Prosecutor Stuart Alford said: “We say this defendant took a knife from his flat and cut the throat of Inderjit Singh, leaving him to die on the staircase of the block of flats.
“Folley had arrived home in the early hours, after an all-day drinking session during which he downed up to 14 pints, and murdered Mr Singh soon afterwards.
