Accused admits stabbing man to death in Dereham
A 49-year-old has admitted murdering a man in a "violent" knife attack.
The body of Brian Head, 69, was found in Boyd Avenue, in the Toftwood area of Dereham, Norfolk, on 5 February.
Richard Alan Beane, of Brunswick Close, Dereham, pleaded guilty to his murder and was remanded in custody at Norwich Crown Court.
He will be sentenced on 12 May. A post-mortem examination found that Mr Heed had been subjected to a "significant, sustained knife attack".
Det Ch Insp Marie James said: "Beane exploited the kind nature of Brian and when he challenged his behaviour he was subjected to a furious violent attack, which resulted in Mr Heed's death.
"My thoughts are with Brian's family at this time and I hope that today's outcome will give them some form of closure knowing that Beane will be sentenced to a significant period of time.
"I hope this outcome provides the public with reassurance that we will use all resources available to us to bring offenders to justice."
