Evil double killer known as the 'Midlands Ripper' caged for violent sexual abuse of boy, 9, in five-year reign of terror | The Sun

A SADISTIC double killer known as the "Midlands Ripper" has been jailed for sexually abusing a boy in a five-year reign of terror.

Alun Kyte, 58, lured the nine-year-old to his home in Stafford with the promise of toys.

He then waged a gruesome five-year campaign of sexual abuse where he raped the victim on at least two occasions.

After the first violent attack, the predator paid him 50p.

Evil Kyte also punched, choked, kicked and taunted the boy – threatening his family after each brutal attack.

The victim was strangled until he became unconscious and was so scared Kyte would harm his loved ones that he decided to "get it over and done with".

The horror ordeal came just a few years before Kyte murdered 20-year-old Samo Paull and Tracy Turner, 30, in 1993 and 1994.

Kyte, who gained the grisly moniker the "Midlands Ripper" after the double slaying, is currently serving a life sentence with a minimum term of 25 years.

He was today handed a third life sentence after he was convicted of four counts of indecency with a child, three of attempting to choke, two of indecent assault on a male, and two of buggery.

He must serve a minimum of tenyears and eight months before he can be considered for release.

Nottingham Crown Court heard how the torment began in the 1980s after the boy was duped into attending Kyte's home.

What followed was five years of hell for the victim as Kyte followed a grisly pattern of increasing violence and threats.

Ben Lawrence, prosecuting, said: "That type of behaviour was repeated a number of times over the next few years.

"The violence and threats used by Kyte would be an obvious explanation as to why his victim felt unable to tell anyone at the time."

Evil Kyte admitted he was capable of violence in his evidence but accused the victim of lying.

But jurors saw through his shameless web of lies and he was convicted on all counts.

In an impact statement, Kyte's victim said he still suffers from depression and anxiety, with anti-depressants impacting his ability to have children of his own.

He also told how he has been diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder.

The victim said: "I grew up feeling scared and vulnerable.

"Growing up, I was never able to be open and honest with anyone.

"I could not form friendships. I did not trust anyone.

"I would live in constant fear of when I was going to be abused next."

He added: "I never had the chance to be the person I wanted to be or could have been."

Kyte was finally jailed in 2000 for murdering sex workers Samo and Tracy after being linked to their deaths thanks to advances in DNA.

He killed his first victim in Birmingham before dumping her body 40 miles away near the M1 in Leicestershire.

Tracy's body was also discovered in Leicestershire – 50 miles from where she first met Kyte at an M6 service station.

The monster was also convicted of a rape committed in Weston-Super-Mare, Somerset, in 1997.

It is feared Kyte could have slain over 20 sex workers in the late 1980s and 1990s – more than Yorkshire Ripper Peter Sutcliffe.

Ex- Chief Constable of Derbyshire Police Mike Creedon, who helped bring Kyte to justice, said: "I'm absolutely convinced there are more victims out there. He did not suddenly do this and then stop. It doesn't work that way with people who are wired like him.

"There might be cold cases out there with evidence that could be reviewed.
