Amelia Arnold The body of Amelia Arnold was found in woodland in Hatfield

A man accused of murdering his teenage girlfriend has admitted obstructing the coroner by burying her body in woodland.

Amelia Arnold, 19, had been missing for several days when her body was found in Hatfield, Hertfordshire, in November.

Jack Wall, 22, who lived with Miss Arnold in Hadrians Walk, Stevenage, appeared at Luton Crown Court earlier.

He denied murdering her on 8 November but admitted the obstruction charge. He is due to stand trial in April.

Judge Richard Foster remanded Mr Wall in custody and there was no application for bail.

Miss Arnold's body was found about 10 miles from her home.

A post-mortem examination revealed she had died of head injuries.
