We've heard of criminals talking to stool pigeons before, but a cat? Here's the story of one David Henton, who was suspected of killing his lover but the police couldn't prove it. So they bugged his house, and found this:
He was recorded talking to his pets and apparently let the cat out of the bag.
In one recording, the 72-year-old shouts: 'Bloody woman,' before adding: 'I had to do something about it. I hit my Joyce,' the pros-ecution claims.
At home next day, Henton was recorded talking 'perhaps to his cats', Paul Lewis QC told the jury, which has not heard the tapes.
