Wayne Couzens ‘arrested’ Sarah Everard before he raped and murdered her
The Metro says ex-Metropolitan Police officer Wayne Couzens pretended to arrest Sarah Everard in order to kidnap, rape and murder her, a court has heard.
The disgraced firearms specialist is at the Old Bailey for sentencing this morning, with Scotland Yard saying it was ‘sickened, angered and devastated’ by his crimes.
Couzens, 48, had finished his 12-hour shift with an elite diplomatic protection unit hours before targeting Sarah.
The 33-year-old marketing executive, who lived in Brixton, south London, was walking home from a friend’s in nearby Clapham after 9pm on March 3.
