Michael Burrows QC and Daniel Oscroft prosecuted John Taylor who was jailed for life over wife Alethea murder

An undertaker has been found guilty of killing his wife at their bungalow and disposing of her body.

John Taylor, 61, was given a life sentence and told he must serve a minimum of 17 years.

He had denied murdering his wife Alethea, who was last seen in Orleton, Herefordshire, in January 2012. Her body has never been found.

The month-long trial at Worcester Crown Court heard Taylor had been having an affair.

Taylor, of Mortimer Close in Orleton, Herefordshire, previously said he believed his 63-year-old wife was still missing.
