A SUSPECTED killer admitted murdering a gay shop assistant after finding his friend embroiled in a naked fight with the man, a court heard.

Ahmed El-Shubrawy, 27, from Perivale, west London, admitted to his pal Ayoub Shahin during a prison visit that he stabbed Dilip Unadkat, 48, of Alexandra Court, Empire Way, Wembley, several times, the Old Bailey heard.

Mr Unadkat was found dead in his flat on November 27 last year with his face and body covered in moisturising lotion.

Despite previously claiming to his friend to have nothing to do with the killing, El-Shubrawy admitted his role during a second prison visit by Mr Shahin, the court heard.

Explaining he had gone with Sami Salama, 36, of Birmingham to the victim's flat on November 25 last year, El-Shubrawy told Mr Shahin they all drank alcohol before Mr Unadkat put on a gay porn DVD and offered the two men Viagra, the court heard.

Salama and Mr Unadkat then went into the bedroom, but after 15 minutes Salama began shouting for help and El-Shubrawy raced in to find the two men fighting naked.

Mr Shahin told the jury: "Ahmed said he tried to get hold of the deceased but he was slippery. I don't know if it was oil or something like that.

"So he grabbed him from the back and he started stabbing him."

Prosecutors claim Shubrawy and Salama were caught on CCTV fleeing the victim's home with suitcases stuffed full of his belongings, including £9,000 of gold jewellery.

When arrested police found clothing, including shirts, suits and ties belonging to the victim, a computer and a camera hidden under insulation between the roof rafters in El-Shubrawy's loft.

Salama and El-Shubrawy both deny murder.

The trial continues.
