A monster has admitted murdering his flatmate after she refused to have sex with him.

Twisted Gary Stevenson, 27, stabbed former cruise ship worker Katy Rourke, 25, three times in a horrific attack in the early hours.

At the High Court in Glasgow her family sobbed as they heard how he confessed to the slaying after cops nicked him, saying: “If it wasn’t her, it would be someone else.”

The court heard how the hospital lab assistant struck at the flatshare where they lived in Govan, Glasgow, just three weeks after Katy, from Broughty Ferry, Dundee, had moved in.

When she failed to turn up for work the next day her pals went round to the flat and saw her car parked outside.

Advocate depute Bruce Erroch, prosecuting, said: “They went out into the back garden and noticed one of the rear windows of the flat was open and a light was on.

“They thought if a light was on Katy must be in and phoned the police.”

The court heard how Stevenson fled the flat after shimmying down a drainpipe and ended up in North Berwick.

But he was snared the following day after he was rushed by ambulance to hospital claiming he’d slashed his wrists.

As they drove him to the station he confessed, saying: “I just want to tell the truth for the sake of the family.”

He then claimed they had been drinking and had sex.

But when Stevenson woke up and pestered Katy for sex again she refused – and he lost control, punching her repeatedly in the face and putting his hands round her throat.

As terrified Katy screamed for help, Stevenson went into the kitchen, got a knife and stabbed her three times.

He told police: “She started fighting back so that’s when I took a knife from the kitchen and used that to make sure she stopped moving, that’s it.

“I’ve never been in trouble for violence. But when I did lose control, it just felt like there was nothing to stop me. There were no moral boundaries left in my life.”

Stevenson admitted murdering Katy between December 29 and 30, last year.

Sentence was adjourned until next month.
