According to the pathologist, this was not the first time Paul Kingsley had engaged in homosexual acts as a passive partner - he had indulged frequently in the past.
Sinclair claimed He strangled Kingsley by mistake after having had sex with him.
Sinclair was found guilty based on forensic evidence. In Sinclair's home a pair of trousers were found that were made out of identical fibres to some found on the clothes of Kingsley. However, this was not enough evidence to prosecute him with. Then 4 red fibres were found on Paul's clothes, and 5 of the same fibres were also found on the trousers of Sinclair. A towel was found in Sinclair's home which matched all nine red fibres. This was then considered enough evidence.

He was found not guilty of murder, and received 7 years imprisonment for manslaughter
