Man admits killing woman, 20, and her fiancé after she travelled to UK to visit him for Christmas | The Sun

A MAN has admitted killing a woman and her fiancé who were found dead in a flat after she travelled to the UK to visit him.

Nino Calabrò, 26, and Francesca Di Dio, 20, were discovered in Stockton-on-Tees, North Yorkshire, in December.

Andrea Cardinale, 21, today pleaded guilty to manslaughter, by reason of diminished responsibility.

Prosecutors accepted the plea due to the "relatively clear psychiatric evidence".

A provisional sentencing date was set for August 15.

Nino and Francesca were originally from Sicily but Nino worked as a table games dealer at a casino in Stockton.
