A TAXI driver has been found guilty of murdering a Coventry woman whose body was found dumped in a canal in Bedworth last year.

Mazhar Rashid, of Stoney Stanton Road, Coventry, had denied killing 27-year-old Emma Ewart but was convicted on Monday at Birmingham Crown Court.

The 43-year-old will serve a 17-year sentence for the crime. He was also convicted of perverting the course of justice, for which he received an 18-month sentence to run concurrently.

Although denying having killed Emma, Rashid admitted disposing of her body in the canal on the morning of Thursday 26 May 2011.
