Yates' killer-what we didn't know,God takes on Mammon and Abramovich spills the beans-Saturday's papers

Saturday's papers are filled with the guilty verdict on the killer of Joanna Yates and the stories that could not be told to the jury.

Tabak secret's dark life says the Mirror reporting that friends told how he fitted seamlessly in the upmarket Bristol district of Clifton where he lived with "the love of his life" Tanja Morson.

Yet behind her back he was leading a depraved sex life, watching violent pornography and setting up meetings with prostitutes.

Hooked on hookers says the Sun as the paper reveals that

the brute, 33 — who portrayed himself in court as a sexually naive innocent — bedded one just two weeks before he strangled neighbour Jo Yeates.

Shame we can't hang her killer is the Express headline as it reports the statement from Joanna's parents

the couple, who sat through every day of horrific evidence about their daughter’s murder a week before Christmas last year, said it was a “regret that capital punishment is not an option”.

A plea also on the front of the Guardian which says that the parents of Joanna Yeates said they hoped Vincent Tabak would suffer a "living hell" in prison for the brutal sexually motivated murder of his nextdoor neighbour.

Away from that story,the week's other topic,Europe is the subject of both the Telegraph's and the Mail's front pages.

The former claims that Whitehall officials are urgently reviewing every aspect of Britain’s membership of the European Union to support David Cameron’s promises to bring back powers from Brussels.

Whilst a new poll for the Mail suggests that the public are overwhelmingly in favour of clawing back a wide range of powers from Brussels and a clear majority say that we should refuse to sign any new EU treaty until that happens.

Meanwhile the FT says that Italy gives EU a post-party hangover as the paper reports that Italy’s borrowing costs have climbed to euro-era highs following this week's agreement as striking Italian civil servants massed in central Rome to protest against possible forced redundancies.

God v Mammon is the Indy's headline

St Paul's reopens its doors, the City of London and the cathedral launch legal actions to evict demonstrators, another clergyman resigns in dismay, David Cameron threatens legislation to ban protest camps – and the Archbishop of Canterbury...says nothing

Finally the Times reports an exclusive look behind the world of Russian oligarchs as Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich tells the paper that he agreed to the huge payment to the oligarch Boris Berezovsky believing that he would finally be able to sever his ties with the man who had given him access to power and influence in Russia.
