In the latest series of ITV’s Crime and Punishment, presenter Trevor McDonald confronts Gibson about the killings in prison.
When asked why he killed his first victim, Karen Hodella, he said simply: “I just felt like it.”
He added: “I didn’t have to have a reason.
“Everybody thinks when you do the type of stuff I did, people automatically think it’s because you had a bad childhood.

“They think you were molested, or ask you if you started fires – I didn’t do any of that.
“I had a perfectly normal childhood.”

His second victim was his mother’s friend, 75-year-old Christine Whitis. Her body was discovered in Gibson’s New Albany garage days before another of Gibson’s victims was found buried in his garden.
