Two men have been charged the murder of oil company worker Carole Waugh, U.K. prosecutors said.

Rakesh Bhayani, 40, and Nicholas David Kutner, 47, had earlier been charged with conspiracy to commit fraud before being charged with the murder of 50-year-old Waugh today, London police said in a statement.
