Trial adjorned in Carole Waugh murder case

The prosecutor in the case of a wealthy woman murdered in central London has said Carole Waugh was something of a Walter Mitty character, with rather fanciful notions about herself.

"She was prone to exaggeration, about her jobs in the past or her jobs in the future", Patrick Gibbs QC said.

In the last 18 months of her life she met a lot of men through adult work, calling herself Sam. Her user name on a website was posh totty fun, and she wrote that she was not a professional, but an enthusiastic amateur, offering a true girlfriend experience, and interested in good clean adult fun.

The trial was adjourned until 10am on Monday.
