A man who sold GHB to gay serial killer Stephen Port, and who hooked up with men on the Grindr gay dating app with the intention of stealing from them, has been found guilty of murder by GHB overdose.
Gerald Matovu, 26, was convicted at the Old Bailey of killing 54-year-old businessman and one-time James Bond extra Eric Michels last August.
Matovu had previously admitted to supplying GHB to Port, who used lethal doses of the drug to kill four young gay men.
The court heard that Matovu and Mr Michels met in London via Grindr and travelled together back to the home of the latter, who had had an uncredited role in the 2012 Bond movie, Skyfall.
There, Mr Michels was given a fatal dose of the chemsex and date-rape drug GHB. Matovu then took photos of his victim’s bank cards, driving licence and various passwords.
As well as murder, Matovu was also found guilty of six counts of administering a noxious substance so as to endanger life and one of possession of GBL with intent to supply.
His co-defendant, Brandon Dunbar, was convicted of two counts of administering a noxious substance so as to endanger life, six counts of possessing articles for use in fraud, four of theft and one of fraud.
Both Matovu and Dunbar were also found guilty of assault by penetration, assault and theft in relation to one victim.
