London - couple 'murdered Abdi Ali and hid his body in a loft for eight months'

(Get West London)- A couple allegedly killed a teenage boy and then stashed his body in the loft of their North London home for eight months.

Stacy Docherty, 28, and Gary Hopkins, 37, allegedly murdered Abdi Ali with a claw hammer and a 16cm long knife at their second floor flat in Enfield on December 21, 2017.

Jurors at the Old Bailey have been told they then bundled the 17-year-old's body in a duvet cover and hid it away, along with the bloodstained weapons.

It has been alleged the pair carried out the killing to gain money so they could give their children a "good Christmas".

Police were alerted after the defendants let slip details about what had happened to friends who visited the flat, the court heard today (Thursday, February 28).
