Rowe would exchange a series of messages with the men before meeting up with them at their homes where they would have sex.Miss Carberry said: 'Daryll Rowe embarked on a cynical and deliberate campaign to infect other men with HIV, having high risk sexual intercourse knowing he was highly infectious.The early history of Gertrude's family is not well documented.The anonymous author of her Vita only hints at her origins: "it would be tedious to insert in this account in what line of earthly origin she was descended.'Unfortunately for many of the men he met his campaign was successful.He deceived those men into believing he was HIV negative, reassuring those he was intimate with.' She said he declined to use condoms and if his victims insisted he wear one he would then 'sabotage' the contraception.A hairdresser deliberately infected four men he met through Grindr with HIV before sending them 'mocking and abusive' texts, a court heard.Daryll Rowe is accused of giving four men the virus, and of attempting to infect a further six between October 2015 and December 2016.
Mc Namara argues that Arnulf retired into religion at the time of Clothar's death in 628, but he kept close ties to the family by marrying his son to Gertrude's sister, Begga.
Rowe was arrested and in an interview with officers he claimed he was not HIV positive and had not met with or had sex with the two men, who had up until then complained.
He was bailed to an address in Berwick, Northumberland and by the time of the second interview a number of other alleged victims had come forward.
Rowe was bailed again but he went missing and a manhunt was launched to track him down and he was eventually arrested in Wallsend where he was using a false name.
The case, which is due to last six weeks, continues.
Rowe's tenth victim, in whose house he was staying when he arrested in Newcastle in December last year, gave police a bag which contained his belongings including a box of ripped condoms.'The condoms were in wrappers and the wrappers had already been opened,' she explained.
