Kate Moss was on killer's 'extortion list', court hears

Kate Moss was listed as a potential target for extortion by a man accused of murdering a respected historian, a court heard.

The supermodel featured on a "clinical" spreadsheet of famous names Michael Danaher wanted to rob or demand ransoms from, jurors were told.

Other celebrities listed included novelist Jeffrey Archer, TV presenters Eamonn Holmes and Michael Parkinson, footballer Rio Ferdinand and music mogul Simon Cowell.

Danaher, 50, is on trial for the murder of Adrian Greenwood on April 6.

The body of the Oxford University-educated academic, 42, was discovered by his cleaner the next day.

The victim's name was also found on a list on the defendant's laptop and mobile phone.

Mr Greenwood, a buyer and seller of rare and valuable books, is believed to have been targeted because he owned a £50,000 first edition of The Wind In The Willows published in 1908.

The classic by Kenneth Grahame was worth a "mouth-watering sum" because it came with an original dust cover.

Danaher, of Peterborough, denies murder.

The trial at Oxford Crown Court continues.
