A Wembley man accused of killing wealthy oil executive Carole Waugh admitted today attempting to dispose of her body.
Rakesh Bhayani, 41, of Chamberlayne Avenue, and Nicholas Kutner, 48, deny murdering Miss Waugh, 50, who disappeared from her home in Marylebone, central London, last year.
Miss Waugh, originally from Durham, was reported missing by her family on May 7 and had not been seen since mid-April.
Her body was found stabbed inside a car in a lock-up garage in Lime Court, New Malden, on August 2.
