The man arrested in connection with the murder and kidnap of oil executive Carole Waugh has been charged with four counts of conspiracy to commit fraud, Scotland Yard said last night.

Nicholas David Kutner, 47, of no fixed abode, is accused of pretending to be Chris Waugh, Ms Waugh's brother, in a bid 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 the 50-year-old's bank account.

The Metropolitan Police said Kutner was bailed to return to a police station on August 25 relating to his arrest on suspicion of murder and kidnap last Wednesday.

But he has not been freed because he is being held in custody on the fraud charges ahead of an appearance by video link at Camberwell Green Magistrates' Court on Monday.
