The prosecutor asked: "Why did you choose a girl who was two years younger than age two girls accused of killing a bill?"

The Bishop said: "Can & # 39; be was someone. Through the psychological trauma of the campaign & # 39; hate what everyone was saying that came in & # 39; such behavior."

The defendant said assaltat the girl to "belittle her shame and sad because I was angry at everyone – everyone had it and has done me".

Mr. Altman stated: "This is the whole outlet. It's all lies.

"You attakkajt to that the girl because they had a sexual interest in children. It had nothing to x & # 39; intersects with & # 39; three years & # 39; hate but everything work & # 39; do not & # 39; Russell Bishop and your character, did not?

"There are many good reasons for that also suggest that there is a clear and striking similarities between the two offenses because the killer & # 39; those two girls in & # 39; October & # 39; 1986 was -istess person who attacked the [seven-year-old] in 1990. And that you're human. "

"Is it legal?"

Bishop had told the jury he was "very ashamed" by the attack, which occurred in & # 39; Devils Dyke on the South Downs.

The court heard that he tried unsuccessfully to appeal against his conviction and sentence on discretionary life.

As he was being questioned about "his" sexual interest in children, the bishop urged and appealed to the court process.

He said: "Your honor. Is this legal? This is correct?"

Mr Justice Sweeney told the bishop he was, and he would not be stopping.

After a break in the proceedings, the judge told the jury: "You observe immediately, of course, Mr. Bishop is in the dock, not the witness box.

"This is because they refused to give further evidence. As you gathered, I gave him time to consider this, but ultimately it is his position.

"I tell you directions on how timely approaching that."

The trial continues.
