A JEALOUS husband killed a pal and destroyed his body after finding out he was sleeping with his wife, a court heard.

Andrew Jones, 52, lured Michael O’Leary to his farmhouse by texting him with Rhiannon’s phone after finding “intimate and graphic” messages on her iPad, it was said.

Police launched a hunt when 55-year-old dad-of-three Mr O’Leary’s car was found abandoned.

Forensics officers found a piece of human tissue, apparently burned, at the bottom of a rusty oil barrel.

Its DNA profile matched Mr O’Leary’s.


Prosecutor William Hughes, QC, said: “The murder was carefully planned and undertaken by Andrew Jones as were steps he subsequently took to cover up or destroy evidence.”

Builder Jones, of Bronwydd, Carmarthen, denies murder.

Trial continues at Swansea crown court.
