A man accused of killing his partner appeared in court this morning.
Paul Hemming, 42, previously pleaded not guilty to the murder of Natalie Hemming.
Today he also denied preventing the lawful burial of her body and obstructing the coroner.
Hemming made a brief appearance at Luton Crown Court via a video link from Bedford Prison.
Mother-of-three Natalie was last seen before her death in Hemel Hempstead. Her body was subsequently found in woodland at Chandlers Cross, 30 miles from their home in Milton Keynes.
It is alleged he murdered Ms Hemming, who worked as an administrator, at their home in Newton Leys, Milton Keynes, between April 30 and May 4.
Hemming’s trial had been set for October 24 and he was remanded in custody.
