An obsessive coin collector has been found guilty of murdering a fellow enthusiast for a set containing Beatrix Potter 50p pieces.

Gordon McGhee, 52, was left for dead after being stabbed 17 times by 33-year-old Danny Bostock, who then tried to set fire to the victim's home in a bid to cover his tracks.

It is reported that Bostock attacked McGhee after he was disturbed while trying to steal the rare coins, leaving a gas cooker on in the Colchester flat and lighting a dishcloth before fleeing in the hope of blowing up the scene of his crime.

Local police soon caught up with the attacker and arrested him on suspicion of murder. Although he denied the charges, this week a jury at Ipswich Crown Court unanimously convicted Bostock of the killing, as well as attempted arson, after just six hours of deliberation.

The three-week trial saw the court hearing that Bostock was a collector of limited edition circulation coins and that he already knew McGhee was in possession of the Beatrix Potter pieces, as the pair had met already through their mutual friend Melissa McGrory.

Apparently McGhee even offered Bostock some spare collectables in the run up to his death, but sadly it wasn't enough and he decided to intrude on the victim's unlocked home in an apparently opportunistic attempt to steal his coveted coins.
