TWO men accused of killing wealthy former oil executive Carole Waugh will face trial in the autumn.

Rakesh Bhayani, 40, and Nicholas Kutner, 47, are charged with murdering Miss Waugh, 50, who is originally from Durham and disappeared from her Marylebone, central London, home.

Miss Waugh's body was found with a single stab wound inside a car in a lock-up garage in Lime Court, New Malden, south west London, on August 2.

Miss Waugh was reported missing by her family on May 7 and had not been seen since mid-April.

Unemployed Bhayani, of Chamberlayne Avenue, Wembley, north west London, and Kutner, of no fixed address, appeared at the Old Bailey today.

No pleas were taken and the men, who are also accused of defrauding Miss Waugh, were remanded to February 1. A trial will take place not before September.
