POLICE investigating the death of oil executive Carole Waugh have arrested a second man on suspicion of murder.

Rakesh Bhayani, 40, of Chamberlayne Avenue, Wembley, is currently being interviewed at a south London police station, said Scotland Yard.

Bhayani, who is unemployed, also faces three charges of conspiracy to commit fraud by false representation worth about £280,000, following transactions associated with Ms Waugh’s identity, said police.

Bhayani appeared via video link at Westminster Magistrates’ Court on July 24 and was remanded in custody. He will next appear at Southwark Crown Court on September 25.

Miss Waugh, originally from Haswell 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 LimeCourt, New Malden, south-west London, last week.

Nicholas David Kutner, 47, of no fixed abode, was arrested on suspicion of murder and kidnap last Wednesday.

He 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.
