Carole Waugh Miss Waugh once worked for an oil company in Libya

Two men accused of the murder of Carole Waugh have been remanded in custody.

The 50-year-old's body was found in a lock-up garage in New Malden, south-west London, on 2 August, months after she was reported missing.

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

Rakesh Bhayani, 40, and Nicholas Kutner, 47, who appeared by video-link at Croydon Magistrates Court, were remanded to appear at the Old Bailey on 22 November.

The men, who have previously been charged with fraud offences linked to Miss Waugh's disappearance, spoke only to confirm their names and address.

Mr Bhayani, of Wembley, north-west London, is also due in court next month on three charges of conspiracy to commit fraud by false representation, to a value of £280,000, following transactions associated with Miss Waugh's identity.

Mr Kutner, of no fixed address, also faces two charges relating to renting Miss Waugh's property at Tressard Court, Marylebone, central London, and one of unlawfully withdrawing funds from her bank account.

He faces an additional charge of pretending to be her brother in order to sell her London home.

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.
