Lorry driver 'bludgeoned friend, 20, over head 20 times with electric saw before stuffing her body in wheelie bin' | The Sun

A LORRY driver allegedly bludgeoned his female friend over the head 20 times with a saw before stuffing her body in a wheelie bin.

Neculai Paizan, 64, is accused of repeatedly beating Hungarian Agnes Akom over the head with an electric saw in his home in Brent, north west London.


Paizan then stuffed the 20-year-old's body in a wheelie bin but then moved it to a park and buried it in a pit under a pile of logs, the Old Bailey heard.

Ms Akom was reported missing on 11 May last year with Paizan, originally from Romania, arrested on May 18 and charged with her murder five days later.

The victim's body was not found for a month. Paizan has denied murder.

Prosecutor Jacob Hallam, QC, said: "On Sunday 9 May 2021 she was killed in a converted shipping container that sits down the side of a car dealership in Brent, in the northwest part of London.

"Her body was found buried in a pit, hidden under a pile of logs and branches, in a wooded part of a recreation ground in Neasden.

"And it was found in that state on 14 June of last year, so exactly a week before she should have turned 21."

The weeks between Akom's death and her body's discovery meant that decomposition was "advanced" but a pathologist found she had suffered "at least 20 blows to her head", jurors heard.

"Those blows had led to her death," Mr Hallam added.

"When her body was found her head had been covered in a black plastic bag, secured with a cord around her throat, the bag seemingly being put on to catch the blood from the injuries to her head as it would appear that the bag was placed on her head after her death."

Paizan had a property in Peel Street, Notting Hill, west London, butrented the shipping container from mid-2019.

When examined by police it was found to be "heavily stained" with Ms Akom's blood, even though "vigorous attempts" had been made to clean it up, it is said.

In the months before the killing, Paizan was seen several times by staff at Lennox Autos, who worked near the shipping container, with a woman matching the description of Ms Akom.

Akom left her Cricklewood Broadway flat in the morning on May 9 after telling her partner that she was going to work.

Between 10 – 11am that morning, she exchanged messages with Paizan, the court heard.

She is also said to have messaged a man she worked for – Attila Molna-Feri, a Hungarian coffin maker, with whom she had an "intimate relationship".

Jurors heard how she booked an Uber to go to Mr Molna-Feri's house, but Paizan arrived at the Costa Coffee where she was sat.

After an exchange, she got into his silver Dacia Sandero.

He drove them to his shipping container, arriving just before midday, the jury heard. CCTV was played which showed the pair entering the grey metal box.

Mr Hallam said: "The doors close behind him. That is the last time that Agnes is seen alive on CCTV."

About half an hour later, CCTV captured Paizan leaving the container to head towards a nearby tap with "red markings" on his arm, the court heard.

Nobody else entered or exited the container, the prosecutor added.

"It is the prosecution's case that in that time Agnes sustained the injuries that caused her death.

"And that the red markings on the defendant's left arm is the blood of the woman that he had just killed."

Just after 3:30pm, the alleged killer dragged items from the shipping container unit and put them into the boot of his car, jurors were told.

The court heard he discarded Ms Akom's white fur coat, a rolled carpet, clothing, pink slip-on shoes and a pillow case.

Police allegedly found some of her things, coated in her blood and hair.

Later that day, CCTV caught Paizan dragging a "large white item" which it is claimed was "large enough to contain a human body" from the door of his unit to his car.

Mr Hallam said: "That was the mechanism of how he got the body of the woman he had killed out of the container.

"He then put it into the car, drove to the flat at Peel Street, left the body in the car overnight and early the following morning headed over to the recreation ground and, using a waste bin, transported the body of the woman he murdered from bag, to bin, to burial site.
