Man guilty of pros­ti­tute mur­der

Harefield Gazette - - NEWS -

A MAN found guilty on Mon­day of the mur­der of a Hayes pros­ti­tute was await­ing sen­tenc­ing as the Gazette went to press.

Navin Mo­han, 34, of Quaker Lane, Southall, was due to be sen­tenced at Read­ing Crown Court on Tues­day for the mur­der of Anita Kapoor, also 34, and could face life in prison.

The jury de­liv­ered their ver­dict shortly be­fore 4.15pm on Mon­day.

The court heard ear­lier in the trial that Ms Kapoor’s body was found by a lorry driver on the morn­ing of June 23. She had been stran­gled in the back seat of Mo­han’s car and her body dumped in un­der­growth close to Amer­sham Road (A413).

The jury was told that Ms Kapoor funded a crack and heroin habit by sell­ing sex to strangers.

It was al­leged that her boyfriend, Stan­ley Flan­ders, 50, acted as her ‘pimp’ and forced her to rob cus­tomers for more cash.

Mo­han claimed in court that he was be­ing black­mailed by Mr Flan­ders and Ms Kapoor had got out of his car and walked off when he re­fused to pay a £300 de­mand.

Mr Flan­ders stren­u­ously de­nied th­ese al­le­ga­tions and told the court he was a lov­ing boyfriend who had been sick with worry after hear­ing his girl­friend’s cries for help over the phone while she was with Mo­han.
