London man is jailed for murder of classical pianist

A man from Thornton Heath was said to have ‘screamed hysterically’ as he beat to death a classical pianist he had met moments before in a bar near Waterloo Station.

Mark Patten, 30, was today sentenced to life at the Old Bailey and ordered to serve a minimum 17 years for the murder of Menelaos Aligizakis on January 3.

Mr Aligizakis, a concert artist and academic from Greece, was in London for the holidays, visiting friends.
