The brother of murdered EastEnders actress Gemma McCluskie has been today sentenced to a life term, with a minimum of 20 years in prison.

It comes after a jury at the Old Bailey reached an 11-1 majority verdict following a two week trial.

Tony McCluskie, aged 26, who shared a family home with the former EastEnders actress in Pelter Street, Bethnal Green, had admitted manslaughter but denied murdering her in March of last year.
