Body in a suitcase trial: accused wrote poem about murder, court told
9:25am Thursday 21st March 2013 in News
ONE of the men accused of murdering Geoffrey Reed penned a poem in prison about planning a thousand ways to kill him, a court heard yesterday.
Extracts of Stuart Wareham’s poem Not Guilty were read to the court on the third day of his evidence.
“I have planned it a thousand ways, discussing it with my best mate Henry most days, from cutting him up, to pushing him of a boat, we only hoped he wouldn’t float.”
Stuart Wareham, 26, told Winchester Crown Court that he was “joking about killing Mr Reed”.
Prosecutor Timothy Mousley QC said: “You planned to kill him and did kill him, didn’t you?”
Stuart Wareham replied: “No.”
He added: “No, I am not responsible for Mr Reed’s murder.”
Mr Reed went missing from his flat in Cecil Road, Boscombe. His remains were discovered in a suitcase buried on land off Huntick Road, Lytchett Matravers.
Stuart Wareham, Lee Wareham and Benjamin Walter all deny murdering Mr Reed between June 6 and June 14 last year.
The trial continues.
