Jamie Lee Warn killed Zsuzsanna Besenyei – whom he had known for many years as they both had worked at the former Les Charrières Hotel in St Peter – and then kept her body concealed in the boot of her car for three days.

He then drove Miss Besenyei's car to Le Pulec Bay in St Ouen and left her body on the beach at low tide before continuing on to Le Haule and leaving her vehicle on that beach to make it appear as though she had taken her own life.

Mr Warn also sent text messages between his phone and Miss Besenyei's, jurors in the Royal Court heard.

After an eight-day trial, the jury of six women and six men convicted Warn (55) of murder and two counts of perverting the course of justice by lying to the police.

They reached unanimous verdicts on perverting the course of justice, and a majority verdict on the murder charge.

Warn will now face a mandatory life sentence. During his sentencing hearing Jurats will set his tariff – the minimum number of years he must serve before he can apply for parole.
