Woman 'used rolling pin to kill'

A woman bludgeoned her mother-in-law to death using a rolling pin, a court heard yesterday.

Rajvinder Kaur, 37, who denies murder, is accused of causing multiple injuries to the head and neck of Baljit Kaur Buttar.

Bill Mousley QC, for the prosecution, told Winchester Crown Court that a paramedic was called to Ms Kaur's home in Southampton last year after receiving a report that a woman had suffered a heart attack.

But when he arrived, he found Ms Buttar, 56, naked and dead in the bath having suffered serious head injuries. The trial, which is expected to last two weeks, continues.
