‘Mur­der pair put vic­tim in wheelie bin’

Midweek Sport - - #LOVE ISLAND -

A MUR­DER vic­tim was trussed up and hidden in a wheelie bin out­side a flat, a jury heard yes­ter­day.

James Wood­house was wrapped up in bed­ding held in place with black duct tape and his up­per body was put in the bin, a court was told.

Prose­cu­tor Si­mon Laws said de­fen­dant Brett Ed­wards “had stolen that wheelie bin the day be­fore the body was dis­cov­ered”.

Mr Laws told Ex­eter Crown Court: “He brought it to his flat in or­der to use it in the dis­posal of the body of James Wood­house.”

He said it was “a des­per­ate plan” by Ed­wards to get rid of the body of the for­mer sol­dier.

Ed­wards, 37, and Tommy Killen, 32, both deny the mur­der of Mr Wood­house on Novem­ber 11 last year at the flat in Ex­eter, Devon.

Mr Laws said: “The de­fen­dants blame each other for that at­tack,” adding that both “were in­volved in the drugs world”.
