A man who hid the dead body of his secret lover in the boot of her car for three days before dumping it on a beach has found guilty of murder.

Jamie Warn, 55, killed 37-year-old Zsuzsanna Besenyei in Jersey in May 2018.

He was having an affair with the Hungarian woman, a former hotel colleague, Jersey Crown Court was told.

Warn, of St Helier, was also convicted of perverting the course of justice and will be sentenced at a later date.

The jury took six hours to find Warn guilty, after hearing evidence over seven days.

He killed Ms Besenyei and hid her body at a car park for three days before dumping it in the middle of the night, the court was told.

Her body was found at the beach - known as Stinky Bay - on 16 May, six days after she was first reported missing.

The pair met while working Les Charrieres Hotel and were having a sexual relationship kept secret from Mr Warn's partner.

Ms Besenyei's partner of seven-and-a-half years Cliff Nobrega welcomed the verdict.

"It does give me some sense of closure," he said outside the court.

"It will take a while for me to move on. Ten months, and I still miss her every day."

Jersey's Royal Court will set a sentencing date on Friday.
