Two men accused of killing wealthy former oil executive Carole Waugh will face trial next autumn.

Miss Waugh's body was found with a stab wound in a garage in New Malden, south-west London, in August.

She had worked for an oil company in Libya and was reported missing from Marylebone, central London, in May.

Rakesh Bhayani, 40, of Wembley, north-west London, and Nicholas Kutner, 47, of no fixed address, appeared at the Old Bailey earlier.

No pleas were taken.

They were remanded until 1 February with a trial not expected to start before September.

The men have previously been charged with fraud offences linked to Miss Waugh's disappearance.

Miss Waugh, 50, originally from Durham, was reported missing by her family who last saw her on 16 April.
