Gumball car killer let off prison

A BRITISH property developer accused of killing a couple with his Porsche in the Gumball 3000 rally wept yesterday as he was given a suspended jail term.

Nicholas Morley had faced 14 years in prison over the deaths of Vladimir Chepulyoski, 67, and his wife Margarita, 65.

His £150,000 Techart Porsche 911 Turbo hit the couple’s VW Golf at a junction near Struga, Macedonia.

Prosecutors alleged that Morley, 30, from Altrincham, Cheshire, was doing 100mph. But he claimed the couple caused the accident by ignoring a stop sign.

Morley broke down after the judge in Struga gave him a two-year suspended jail term for “endangering traffic leading to death”. He had been in custody since the crash on May 2. The Gumball 3000 was cancelled after the accident.
