TWO men are due to stand trial next week charged with the murder of 34-year-old business woman Sameena Imam.

Sameena was working as a regional marketing manager for cash and carry wholesaler, Costco, and was last seen leaving the store at around 4pm on Christmas Eve.

Sameena’s body was found by the police inquiry team on January 21 buried in an allotment in Leicester.

Roger Cooper, 40 of Tile Hurst Drive, Coventry, who was the manager of the Coventry Costco Warehouse at the time, and his brother, David Cooper, 38 of Hughenden Drive, Leicester, were charged with her murder on January 9.

They are set to stand trial at Birmingham Crown Court from Monday (August 17).

The trial is expected to last eight weeks.
