A man has been jailed for life for murdering his ex-wife, then driving her body to Europe and dumping it in a shallow grave.
47-year-old Lithuanian Rimas Venclovas killed Vitalija Baliutaviciene, 29, after she moved to the UK to start a new life with another man. A mushroom-picker found Vitalija's body in a remote wood in western Poland more than two months after she disappeared from her home in Peterborough.
The court heard how Venclovas had bragged about his plans to kill his former wife, and spent months plotting her murder. He applied for travel documents under an assumed name, and grew his hair and a moustache. He also staged a trial run three weeks before he killed her.
Venclovas, from Taurage in Lithuania, had denied murder and kidnapping but an Old Bailey jury unanimously convicted him of murder after four hours of deliberation at the conclusion of a six-week trial.
