Claims murder accused felt 'stitched up' by pre-nup

Wed, 11 May 2011

Prosecutors allege a former Island resident was killed by her husband because he felt cheated by a pre-nuptial agreement.


Millionairess Joanna Brown was found murdered in woodland near her home in Ascot last year.


Her pilot husband Robert Brown went on trial in Reading this week.


The jury was told Brown attacked his wife with a hammer or mallet having already prepared a plastic crate in the woods to place her body in.


The defendant denies murdering the 47 year old.


The court heard the couple's marriage had broken down and it's alleged Brown thought he was entitled to more money than he would have received in the divorce settlement.
