Tetra Pak heir admits delaying wife's burial

In London, the heir to the Swedish Tetra Pak packaging dynasty, Hans Kristian Rausing, has pleaded guilty to delaying the burial of his wife.

The decomposing body of Eva Rausing was found in the couple’s luxury London home last month.

Initially the 49-year-old Rausing was arrested on suspicion of murdering his wife. On Wednesday he pleaded guilty at Isleworth Crown Court to preventing her lawful and decent burial, as well as for driving a vehicle under the influence of drugs.

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