(London) The literary agent credited with the success of the hit British films The Full Monty and Billy Elliot was murdered by a boyfriend who wanted his money a London court has been told.

Rod Hall, 53, was stabbed to death after being chained and manacled during what the prosecutor said was a an S&M sex game punctuated by greed.

Hall had become a wealthy man representing some of Britain's most acclaimed young writers. After his relationship with a long time partner dissolved Hall went through a series of short term affairs.

One boyfriend, Usman Durrani, 22, is on trial accused of killing Hall in a premeditated attack.

Prosecutor Aftab Jafferjee told the court that when Hall realized Durrani was only interested in him for his money he tried to dump the much younger man.

The two apparently met on the internet in an S&M site.

Jafferjee told the court that Durrani, a Muslim, had been leading a doubly secreted life. He had married behind his family’s back and was a closeted gay into sado-masochism.

On the night of killing, Jafferjee said, Hall agreed to be chained up in a dungeon he had built inside his home. But, once restrained, Durrani drew a knife and repeatedly stabbed him.

After business associates could not reach him they called police who discovered Hall's body in his home on May 23, 2004.

Durrani denies murdering Hall but admits to manslaughter.
