The Standard reports:

She put him into the bin with the help of her friend, Bernard Beddoe, laid it on its side, and covered it up.

Otmani had been talking about getting rid of her on-off lover and had even asked another boyfriend to experiment with some blue liquid to see if it would knock him out...
