LONDON (AFP) - A veteran BBC broadcaster was arrested on suspicion of murder Wednesday after admitting he had smothered to death an ex-lover who had AIDS, police said.
Ray Gosling, 70, made the confession in a television programme this week about assisted suicide, and ahead of the publication of new guidelines on assisted suicide next week.
He said he killed the unnamed man as he lay seriously ill in hospital "in the early period of AIDS" - likely to be during the 1980s.
A spokeswoman for Nottinghamshire Police in central England said officers "this morning arrested a 70-year-old Nottingham man on suspicion of murder following comments on the BBC's Inside Out programme on Monday evening."
