Man sentenced to 40 years in prison for the murder of two people, including the brother of 'Kinky Boots' actor Kinky Boots.
According to reports, a British businessman sentenced two individuals to death, including Matt Henry's brother, who was killed in a gangland-style execution.
A 32-year-old man has been charged with the murders of Will Henry, 31, and Brian McIntosh, 29, who were sitting in a Range Rover when they were shot last September in Dudley, West Midlands.
Judge Martin Spencer of Birmingham Crown Court told Houseman during sentencing that the killer's story of a mystery triggerman was "a web of lies you presented to the jury".
As a result of the celebrity link and Houseman's embarrassing attempts to cover up the deaths, the British press was captivated by the story.
The Sun claims that police believe Houseman owes the two victims more than $500,000 for rubbish removal service they performed for him.
However, closed-circuit footage and forensic evidence disproved Houseman's claims that a mysterious fourth man fired the trigger in the Range Rover.
A fourth passenger had been in the car, according to Judge Spencer. 'There wasn't a fourth man there. When you shot them from behind in what was effectively an execution, it was you who drew the trigger.
When Houseman escaped from the crime site to seek shelter at a friend's business, he removed his blood-soaked clothes and doused himself with cleaning fluid to disguise his tracks, among other gruesome facts disclosed at trial. As a final step, Avery burned the clothing in an incinerator.
He was sentenced to 2 1/2 years in prison for his involvement with the crime.
