Killer Andrew Lindo deceived fiancee's family

A music teacher who strangled, beat and stabbed his fiancee to death and hid her body in a suitcase has been found guilty of murder.

Andrew Lindo, 29, killed Marie Stewart at their home in Holmfirth, West Yorkshire, in December.

He admitted manslaughter but was convicted of murder after a 10-day trial at Bradford Crown Court.

Lindo stored the body of Miss Stewart - the mother of his two children - in the garage. She was found two months later.

Danny Savage reports.
