Saudi Prince killed servant in sex attack at Marylebone hotel

A SAUDI Prince beat and strangled his servant to death in a sexually-motivated killing at a Marylebone hotel, the Old Bailey has heard.

Saud Abdulaziz bin Nasser al Saud, 34, killed Bandar Abdulaziz at the five-star Landmark Hotel, on Marylebone Road, after subjecting the victim to weeks of physical and sexual abuse, the court heard.

The body of Mr Abdulaziz, 32, was found lying on his bed in a pool of blood on February 15 with injuries to the neck, head and abdomen as well as bite marks to the face.

Mr al Saud admits manslaughter but denies murder and one count of causing grievous bodily harm with intent. The trial continues.
