A London court has sentenced Swedish multi-millionaire Hans Rausing to 10 months in custody suspended for two years for preventing the burial of his wife. The sentence is on condition Rausing takes part in a residential drug rehabilitation program for two years.

The heir to the Swedish Tetra Pak packaging dynasty, Hans Kristian Rausing, pleaded guilty to the charges Wednesday in Isleworth Crown Court.

The decomposing body of Eva Rausing was found in the couple’s luxury London home last month. The court was told that she had been dead for two months before her body was found, and that she had taken cocaine shortly before she died.

The Rausings had publicly struggled with drug addiction for many years, and first met at an addiction clinic.
