Cold Case Murder

25 October 2023

Rupert Kent, being led by Richard Horwell K.C. (3 Raymond Buildings), and with Lucy Coen (Broadway House Chambers) as disclosure junior, secured comprehensive convictions in a ‘cold case’ three-handed murder prosecution heard over eight-weeks at Leeds Crown Court. The case arose from the 2011 disappearance of the deceased, whose shallow grave was unearthed nine years later by forensic archaeologists after a witness who was present at the murder and subsequent unlawful burial (and who was later granted immunity from prosecution by the D.P.P.) came forward to the police. Instructed by the C.P.S. Complex Casework Unit.’
