A detective investigating the murders of Ronnie Kidd and Holly Alexander in a Dundee flat has admitted the probe was “challenging”.
Krzysztof Gadecki was sentenced to life imprisonment at the High Court in Edinburgh after being found guilty of the murders of the pair at a flat in Rosefield Street last December.
The 38-year-old must serve a minimum term of 26 years before he can be considered for parole.
Detective Inspector Brian Geddes, of the Major Investigation Team, today said: “Krzysztof Gadecki was an acquaintance of both Ronald Kidd and Holly Alexander.
“Motivated by his need for money and drugs, he brutally murdered them within their home.
“I’d like to thank everyone who helped us with the investigation, in what was a challenging inquiry.
“Our thoughts are with Ronnie and Holly’s families and friends. I hope this conviction brings some small degree of comfort to them”
On Wednesday it was revealed that Gadecki has previous convictions for rape, robbery and fraud in his native Poland.
