A wealthy woman was murdered in central London by two professional conmen with gambling habits, who then recruited women to impersonate her so they could take her goods as well as her life, a court has heard.
Her body was found in a garage in New Malden three months after she disappeared.
The court heard she was targeted by conmen who recruited women to impersonate her so they could steal from her.
