Gurpreet Singh is accused of murdering his second wife Sarbjit Kaur with the help of an unknown accomplice at their Rookery Lane home in February last year.

The 44-year-old, who denies all charges, is also accused of soliciting the murder of his first wife Amandeep Kaur by offering an employee £20,000 to stab her in the neck in 2013.

During the trial, Wolverhampton Crown Court heard how father-of-two Singh allegedly strangled 38-year-old Sarbjit between 8.15am and 9am after dropping his children at school and before leaving for work.

The trial also heard Amandeep died of a brain haemorrhage during a holiday in India with Singh a year after his alleged hitman failed to kill her.

Giving evidence during his trial, Singh said he had suffered “mentally, physically and financially” since being charged by police.

The jury is set to resume its deliberations on Monday, June 3.
