UK: Man Jailed for Killing Woman on First Date

A fitness trainer was jailed for life today for murdering a woman on their first date.

Kate Beagley, 32, was killed in a frenzied attack as she sat on a park bench at a beauty spot overlooking the river Thames in May last year.

Her naked body was found four days later with 31 stab wounds to the face and neck.

Today at the Old Bailey, Karl Taylor, 27, of Covent Garden, central London, was found guilty of her murder and told he must serve a minimum of 30 years in prison.

After his arrest, Taylor led police to Beagley's body dumped in nettles in Oxhey Wood, north of London.

He had driven her there in the boot of her grey VW Golf car, which Taylor told police he had intended to steal when he met her.

The trial heard Taylor had gone on the date armed with a knife, which he placed up his sleeve as he sat with Beagley in the Roebuck pub in Richmond Hill, south-west London.
