A Briton is to appear in court in Malaysia on a charge of kidnapping and murdering a young couple and disposing of their bodies, the Foreign Office said yesterday. If found guilty, Ian Daniel Miller will face the death penalty.

Miller, 46, who has been working in Malaysia for the past year, has been charged along with a Filipino colleague, Rikason Alip Piblani, 34. The two men, who were charged on the island of Labuan, will appear in court for a preliminary hearing today. They are accused of killing Erwin Harina, 26, and Jocelyn Dumpor, a Filipino couple, at a house on Labuan between 19 May and 14 June. Neither man has entered a plea to the charges.
