Two men spent weeks plotting the murder of a 23-year-old woman in Kent, a court has heard.

Adam Whelehan, 23, of Roseberry Avenue, Sidcup, and Thomas Fuller, 23, of Oakley Drive, Eltham are accused of murdering Natalie Jarvis.

She was found at the side of Swanley Village Road, Swanley, on 3 October with stab wounds to the neck.

Both men deny murder, however, Mr Whelehan admitted killing Ms Jarvis in self defence.

The prosecution told the court that Mr Whelehan killed Ms Jarvis, who was stabbed 20 times, because he wanted to end their relationship.

Three and a half hours after she was pronounced dead at the roadside, Mr Whelehan handed himself in at a police station.

The trial continues.
