A man has 'killed his fiancée’s dad and entombed his body in concrete', it is alleged.

Brit Marcus Ricketts, 24 – who moved to Alabama, USA, for his lover after meeting her on Xbox Live – has been charged with murdering her father William ‘Scotty’ Goldin.

The gamer from Birmingham, who has pleaded not guilty, will not face execution if found guilty, despite the victim's family demanding the death penalty for his alleged actions.

Despite his plea, according to court documents Ricketts allegedly admitted dumping Goldin's body in a 55-gallon drum which he filled with concrete and buried in woodland behind the victim’s garden near Valley Head in July 2018, Mirror Online reports.

Ricketts moved to the US from Birmingham in 2017 to live with his lover Chasity Hill after they met while playing video games on Xbox Live.

Ricketts' alleged signed confession, filed in court papers, claims he was scared of Mr Goldin, a former mechanic, because he was "abusive" and threatened him with a machete.

The Brit allegedly said: “He told me several times that he would kill me.”

Ricketts allegedly claims he stabbed Mr Goldin in the chest in self-defence after his fiancee's dad accused him of stealing his 'spice' – a synthetic cannabis – also known as zombie drug.

Ricketts allegedly wrote: “I had started bringing a knife to bed because I was afraid.

"Scotty started hitting me with the baseball bat and I went into a rage.

“I stabbed him once in the chest on the upper right side. Then once in the back over his left shoulder. And finally in his side and I remember hearing a pop.

“I came back to myself and I was sitting in the living room with blood on my hands. I then looked down the hallway and saw his body and freaked out a bit.”

Ricketts has been charged with murder – but avoided the death penalty charge of ‘capital murder’.

He remains in US custody and will face court at a later date.
