A father allegedly murdered his daughter after she accused him of sexual abuse before getting his wife to cover it up.

Bernadette Walker, 17, from the Peterborough, UK, had accused her father, Scott Walker, of assaulting her in the games room, claiming he had spied on her via hidden cameras, a prosecutor claimed on Monday.

Opening the trial against Scott and Sarah Walker, the barrister told how they had exchanged text messages from their daughter’s mobile phone to make people think she was still alive and “lay a false trail”. “Instead, selfishly and ruthlessly, they maintained their lying accounts which were designed only to protect themselves.”Scott Walker, 51, has been charged with his daughter’s murder. Both he and Sarah, 38, face two counts each of perverting the course of justice.

“When her grandparents said goodbye to her that morning, it was the last time that they, or anyone other than Scott Walker, saw her alive.”
