Waugh Murder: Man Charged

A man arrested over the murder and kidnap of businesswoman Carole Waugh has been charged with four counts of conspiracy to commit fraud.

Nicholas David Kutner, of no fixed abode, is accused of pretending to be Chris Waugh, Ms Waugh's brother, in a bid to sell her London home.

The 47 year old, who was arrested at Luton Airport on Tuesday 31 July 2012, also faces two charges relating to renting her property at Tressard Court and a fourth of unlawfully withdrawing funds from the 50-year-old's bank account.

Miss Waugh, (right) originally from Durham but living in London, had not been seen by her family since mid-April.

Her body was found with a single stab wound inside a car at the garage in Lime Court, New Malden, south-west London, on the night of Thursday 2 August.

The Metropolitan Police said Kutner was bailed to return to a police station on August 25 relating to his arrest on suspicion of murder and kidnap last Wednesday.

But he has not been freed because he was being held in custody on the fraud charges ahead of an appearance by video link at Camberwell Green Magistrates' Court on Monday 6 August 2012.
