Immigrant found guilty of killing his girlfriend
AN ILLEGAL immigrant who murdered his girlfriend after discovering she was on the Pill is facing life behind bars.
Kirk Reid, of Honor Oak Road, Forest Hill, strangled 27-year-old Michelle Napier with a phone cord after finding out she was not pregnant.
Police found her semi-naked body in her home in Bermondsey lying next to a razor blade and the phone cord on September 1 last year.
Reid, aged 28, had denied murder but was found guilty at Southwark Crown Court on May 26 and warned he faces a life sentence.
The court heard the mother-of-two was working at Manley Court Nursing Home, New Cross, and sending her earnings back to her mother in Jamaica.
She started a relationship with Reid, who had no previous convictions, and he began telling people she was pregnant.
Prosecutor Sallie Bennett-Jenkins told jurors: "He told his cousin Lisa but she was surprised as she had seen her friend taking the contraceptive pill."
Sentencing was adjourned until June 30 for a psychiatric report on Reid, who has an IQ of just 69.
