Officers examined more than 140 items – including clothes and receipts – belonging to satellite installer Neil McMillan, 42, at the room he rented in Brighton, East Sussex.

McMillan, originally from Annan, denies murdering prostitute Andrea Waddell, 29, on the night of October 15 last year.

The prosecution at Lewes Crown Court alleges he strangled Miss Waddell at her flat in Brighton after booking her for a £140 session, then set the flat on fire to cover his tracks.

Miss Waddell’s body was found bruised and charred in her three-roomed flat.

The jury has heard police found more than £37,000 cash in her flat.

McMillan admits visiting Miss Waddell for sex on the night she died, but insists she was still alive when he left.

Police tracked McMillan down through text messages and calls he made to her mobile phone, the court has heard.

The case continues.
