THE trial of Thomas Nutt whose new bride was found stuffed in a suitcase and dumped in bushes near his home has been adjourned until tomorrow morning.

The case is set to resume at 10am when the forensic pathologist, Dr Kirsten Hope, will continue giving her evidence at Bradford Crown Court.

Nutt, 45, of Shirley Grove, Lightcliffe, denies murdering Miss Walker but admits her manslaughter.

The jury has heard that the last time Miss Walker, 52, was seen alive was on her wedding night after the couple married at Halifax Register Office on October 27 last year.

He body was discovered four days later by her maid of honour who partially unzipped the suitcase after suspicions were aroused.

It is the Crown’s case that Nutt killed Miss Walker before saying they went on honeymoon to Skegness for two days.

He phoned the police to report his new wife missing on October 31 saying she had gone to visit her daughter in Brighouse and hadn’t turned up.

The trial continues.
