A German internet wargame enthusiast who has confessed to murdering a Briton he met online was in love with the victim's girlfriend and had tried to woo her, German police claimed yesterday.
The allegation sheds further light on a bizarre crime in which Matthew Pyke, a 20-year-old, was stabbed to death at his Nottingham home. Pyke was heavily involved with internet wargaming websites, and early theories contended that he had been killed by an online rival.
