Hans Kristian Rausing, one of the heirs to the Tetra Pak fortune, has appeared in court charged with preventing the lawful and decent burial of his wife, Eva, whose body was said to have been found underneath several layers of clothing and bin bags at their luxury home.

Dressed smartly in a pale blue shirt and navy jacket, Rausing, 49, spoke only to confirm his date of birth and address during his first appearance in court since his arrest last week. He carried with him a copy of the book As Seen on TV.

Police discovered the body of mother-of-four in an advanced state of decomposition after they arrested her husband on suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs last Monday.

Rausing, one of Britain’s richest women, was found beside a bed in an annexe on the second floor of the opulent house in Cadogan Place in London’s Chelsea, which she shared with her 49-year-old husband.
