A man on trial for murdering his wife described to court today the moments before she died.
The body of John Yates' wife Barbara was found in the boot of his car outside St Asaph police station last July.
Mr Yates, 58 and from Warrington, said they had been in his car together, arguing. He said he held his wife around the throat, headbutted her and hit her.
His defence barrister asked: "Did you hit her until she was was dead?" He replied: "I think so." He asked "Did you intend to kill her?" Mr Yates replied: "No. That was the last thing I wanted." "My head went. I had no plan", he said.
He told the court he covered her in a tarpaulin and drove the body to Wales. He denies murder, but admits manslaughter. The trial, at Caernarfon Crown Court, continues.
