UK: Teacher murdered fiancee and stored her body in a suitcase

A MUSIC teacher was today found guilty of the murder of his fiancee who he strangled, battered and stabbed before storing her body in a suitcase in the garage.

Andrew Lindo, 29, admitted manslaughter but denied the murder of Marie Stewart at their home in Holmfirth, West Yorkshire, on December 18 last year.

A jury at Bradford Crown Court rejected his claim that he lost self control following a row in which he accused her of mistreating their young daughter.
