A man has appeared in court accused of defrauding murdered oil executive Carole Waugh.
Nicholas Kutner is charged with four counts of conspiracy to commit fraud.
The 47-year-old, of no fixed address, is accused of pretending to be Chris Waugh, Ms Waugh's brother, in a bid to sell her London home.
He also faces two charges relating to renting her property at Tressard Court, and a fourth of unlawfully withdrawing funds from the 50-year-old's bank account.
Kutner appeared at Camberwell Magistrates' Court in south east London on Monday by video-link from Sutton Police Station. He spoke only to confirm his name and date of birth.
He was remanded in custody to appear at Southwark Crown Court on August 13.
Kutner was arrested at Luton Airport on August 1 as he flew back from a holiday in Majorca with his family.
Ms Waugh, originally from Durham but who was living in Harrowby Street in central London, was reported missing by her family on May 7.
Her body was found with a single stab wound inside a car in a lock-up garage in Lime Court, New Malden, south west London, on August 2.
