A couple who deny killing a French nanny have admitted perverting the course of justice by attempting to dispose of her body by burning it.
Sophie Lionnet's charred remains were discovered following reports from neighbours about a "weird barbecue" at a house in Southfields, South West London in September 20 previous year.
The victim was identified locally as Sophie Lionnet, a 21-year-old girl from Troyes, in north-eastern France.
Designer Sabrina Kouider, 34, and her partner Ouissem Medouni, 40, of Wandsworth, deny murdering the nanny on or before 20 September.
But they pleaded guilty today to a second charge of perverting the course of justice by attempting to "dispose of the body of Sophie Lionnet by burning". A French interpreter helped her to follow the hearing.
Record highs on the stock market, but will it last?
Her partner, dressed in a burgundy sweatshirt, paused for a short time before entering a guilty plea to perverting the course of justice.
The two are due to stand trial from March 19.
