Pub landlord denies ‘body in freezer’ murder

A PUB landlord this morning denied murdering his 29-year-old partner whose body was found in a freezer.

Michael Tucker, 49, landlord of The Compasses Inn in Snettisham, Norfolk, is charged with killing landlady Rebecca Thorpe.

Tucker was arrested after Miss Thorpe’s body was found in a freezer in an outbuilding at the pub in March.

A post-mortem examination found she died from a gunshot wound to the head.

Tucker entered a not guilty plea during the hearing at Norwich Crown Court. His trial is due to begin on December 6.
