The teenager accused of murdering one of George Osborne‘s top Treasury advisers arrived at court for his trial today.
Paul
Jefferies, 52, was a reclusive figure who barely set foot outside his
door since moving from London to the house in Mayfield, East Sussex,
where his body was found in February.
Ben Bamford, who turned 18 earlier this year, was brought by prison van to Lewes Crown Court today for the start of his trial.
Mr
Jefferies, a top official at HMRC, was found at his home in Coggins
Mill Lane on February 25 after colleagues expressed concerns for his
welfare.
A post-mortem examination showed he died from multiple injuries.
Mr
Jefferies, who was openly gay, had worked for HMRC for 20 years and had
helped shaped Government policy on a range of tax and financial issues
since Mr Osborne became Chancellor in 2010.
Mr
Osborne was removed unceremoniously from the post in Theresa May’s
Cabinet reshuffle after his friend David Cameron left office.
