A man arrested in connection with the murder and kidnap of the County Durham businesswoman Carole Waugh has been charged with four counts of conspiracy to commit fraud.

Nicholas David Kutner, 47, of no fixed abode, is accused of pretending to be Chris Waugh, her brother, who lives in Penrith, in an attempt to sell her London home.

He also faces two charges relating to renting her property at Tressard Court and a fourth of unlawfully withdrawing funds from her account.

Ms Waugh's body was found on Thursday night in a car at a lock-up garage in the London suburb of New Malden. She'd not been seen by her family since April.

Mr Kutner is due to appear before Camberwell Green magistrates on Monday.

A second man, Rakesh Bhayani, 40, of Wembley, is also charged with three counts of conspiracy to commit fraud in connection with the case.
