Courts continue investigating the death of an Essex backpacker

A court in New Zealand's heard how a man killed Essex backpacker Grace Millane, put her body into a suitcase, and then went on a date.

The court also heard that she died after being choked during a sexual encounter with her alleged killer.

The body of the 22 year-old from Wickford was found in a forested area near Auckland last December.

Prosecutors say she'd met the 27 year-old suspect on the dating app Tinder.

The defendant denies murdering Millane just before her birthday in December 2018.

Records allegedly show he searched online for "the hottest fire" and "large bags near me".
