French nanny was murdered and burned after being accused of stealing a diamond necklace and dabbling in black magic, a court heard.
Sophie Lionnet’s charred remains were found in a garden in Southfields, Wimbledon, on September 20 last year after a neighbour reported foul smells coming from a garden fire.
Before her death, the 21-year-old had been starved, mistreated and assaulted after she went to live with Sabrina Kouider, a mother of two, and her partner Ouissem Medouni.
…Ms Kouider, 35, a former partner of Mark Walton, a founder member of the pop band Boyzone, and Mr Medouni, 40, deny murdering Miss Lionnet.
The court heard Ms Kouider accused her nanny of being in cahoots with Mr Walton and said he controlled her through black magic.
