A Scottish murderer who wed a pedophile in Britain’s first gay prison marriage will not be allowed to share a cell with his husband, jail bosses have said.
Pedophile Mikhail Gallatinov, 40, and Marc Goodwin, 31, who is from Airdrie and serving life for a gay hate killing, were married at the maximum security Full Sutton prison, near York on Friday.
According to reports, the 15-minute ceremony, during which the prisoners wore suits, was attended by four family members.
It came at no cost to the public purse, a Prison Service spokesman said.
“We are very clear that if prisoners do get married, the taxpayer does not foot the bill for the ceremony and they are certainly not allowed to share a cell,” he said.
Gallatinov was convicted of murdering Adrian Kaminsky, 28, in Manchester in 1997 and sentenced to life with a minimum of 20 years in prison.
Manchester Crown Court heard that he was a predatory pedophile, with convictions for offences against children, who was under surveillance by undercover police when he strangled Mr Kaminsky.
