A Manchester gay man has appeared in court the UK for trying to poison his lesbian neighbours, Marie Walton and Beverley Sales.

Gary Stewart is accused of offering the couple leftover curry, which was found to contain slug poison pellets.

The neighbours have reportedly been feuding for some time, with Stewart also accused of having previously abducted the women’s cat.

“It has been nothing short of a nightmare. I hope this brings things to an end because what those two girls have had to endure these past years has been horrendous. He was abusive to them and made their lives a misery,” a neighbour told

While Stewart, who has yet to be sentenced, has admitted that he tried to poison his neighbours, he denied that he aimed to kill them. The pellets are not believed to be strong enough to kill an adult.
