The trial of a man accused of murdering a waiter who was found dead at a flat next to a restaurant where he worked in East Sussex has begun.

Shahadat Mollah Sohag, 21, of no fixed address, denies murder and aggravated burglary.

A jury was sworn in on Tuesday at Lewes Crown Court.

The body of Ahmed Remon Hayder was found in Seaford on 1 February. Another man has admitted murder and aggravated burglary.

Mohammed Anhar, 33, of Tower Hamlets, east London, who pleaded guilty to the charges in April, will be sentenced at the end of the trial.

Mr Hayder, 27, who was also known as Ray, worked at the Moon of India restaurant, which he had been running while his parents were on holiday in Bangladesh.

His body was found at the flat in Sutton Park Road after blood was spotted dripping into an architects' office below.
