The jury in a murder trial of a woman killed while living in Peterborough has retired to consider its verdict.
Vitautas Jokubauskas (57) allegedly strangled Ramute Butkiene (42) with the cord of her dressing gown in their home at Mayor’s Walk, Peterborough after accusing her of having another lover.
After killing her, he cut her body up and buried parts in woods in the city.
Jokubauskas has admitted manslaughter and preventing lawful burial, but denies murdering the mother of one.
The trial at Southwark Crown Court has lasted a week and the jury is today (Thursday, November 19) considering its verdict.
