A chef from Surrey has been given a life sentence for killing his wife with a griddle pan, dumping her body in a freezer for three years.
Unemployed Peter Wallner, formerly of Hamilton Avenue, Cobham, was convicted at the Old Bailey of killing Melanie Wallner, according to the BBC.
He denied murder but admitted hitting her three times in the face with the pan. Her body was found dumped in a wheelie bin outside their home in 2009 after Wallner left the country with his new girlfriend.
A week after his wife's death, Wallner told friends and her South African relations that she had collapsed and died suddenly of a brain aneurysm.
Wallner, 34, was told he would serve a minimum of 20 years in prison.
