Two men have been charged with murdering Carole Waugh, whose body was found in a lock-up garage several months after she went missing.

Miss Waugh, 50, of Marylebone, central London, was found in New Malden, south-west London.

Post-mortem tests found she died from a single stab wound.

Rakesh Bhayani, 40, of Chamberlayne Avenue, Wembley, and Nicholas Kutner, 47, of no fixed abode, have been charged with her murder.

Both men will appear in custody at Croydon Magistrates' Court on Thursday.

Mr Bhayani is also charged with three counts of conspiracy to commit fraud by false representation over transactions associated with Miss Waugh's identity, worth about £280,000.

Mr Kutner is charged with four counts of conspiracy to commit fraud over the case.

Miss Waugh, who had worked for an oil company in Libya, was reported missing by her family in May.

Police said Miss Waugh, originally from Durham, had been dead "for some time" when they found her.
