THE serving Met police officer accused of Sarah Everard’s kidnap and murder will appear at the Old Bailey today.
Wayne Couzens, 48, has been charged with the kidnap and murder of the 33-year-old marketing executive, which sparked anger across the UK.
Couzens appeared before a judge at Westminster Magistrates Court on Saturday but was remanded in custody – where he has been held until today’s scheduled hearing.
Meanwhile, cops investigating Sarah Everard’s death today discovered a gold necklace as they scour a new area 30 miles from her body was found.
The item of jewellery, found on top of a car park machine at a local Co-Op, was placed in an evidence bag – but it is not clear if it is connected to the tragic case.
Other officers with sticks were seen searching through a shopping trolley shelter and scanning under cars in the supermarket’s car park.
