A sadistic double murderer who wore skull and crossbones gloves in a month of random violence faces a life sentence today.

Ali Koc, 30, beat his victims with lumps of wood, before head butting, punching and kicking them in a series of motiveless attacks in parks across north London.

Koc stalked the parks and woodland near his home in Hornsey to batter two pensioners to death and attack five other strangers.

Victor Parsons, 67, died seven weeks after he was battered with a branch shaped like a “caveman’s club” in Alexandra Park.

Keith Needell, 84, died six months after being beaten in Queen’s Wood.

Koc, who came to Britain from Turkey and lived off benefits, was convicted today of both murders as well as five assaults on other men who were either jogging or dog walking.

None of the victims – aged from 29 to 85 –  were robbed, or threatened and there was no sexual motive for the attack.

He will be sentenced later by Mr Justice Calvert-Smith.
