Adrian Prout is a British millionaire who killed his wife Kate by strangling her in 2007. He was motivated by anger at his wife for demanding money in their upcoming divorce.

Murder and Investigation

On November 5th 2007, Kate had an argument with Prout about the divorce, after which he strangled her to death. Five days later, he reported her missing. After police drew a blank, Kate was pronounced dead in 2008, and in 2009, Prout was arrested on suspicion of her murder, on the grounds that they knew she had been killed, and his motive had recently come to light. Prout was convicted and sentenced to life imprisonment in 2010, eventually admitting his guilt after the conviction and showing the police her corpse's location.
