I know the crime is abhorrent and, if guilty, this man[^] deserves everything they throw at him. But along with murder & kidnapp they are charging him with perverting the course of justice for getting rid of the body! I know this charge will probably get dropped in favour of the more serious ones but I just find it incredible that they charge him for that, as part of the crime is trying to get away with it.
Using this logic you could charge a bank robber for wearing a mask or a shop-lifter for concealing something up their jumper for perverting the course of Justice. Unless I'm missing something??
