A man who killed and dismembered a retiree in a bid to steal his money dumped his victim’s remains in a badger sett, a court has heard.
Daniel Walsh, 30, is accused of murdering Graham Snell, 71, whose body parts were found in various locations around Chesterfield.
On the last day he was seen alive, Derby Crown Court heard, Mr Snell told police the defendant had been stealing from his bank account.
Mr Walsh denies murder.
Prosecutor Peter Joyce QC told jurors Mr Snell went to a police station on 19 June last year and told officers he had “a problem with a man who comes and stays at my house without being invited”.
