A woman from Hemel Hempstead who helped her smuggler husband launder hundreds of thousands of pounds of drug money has been jailed for 40 months.

Chinonyerem Otuonye, 44, was arrested at her home in Sandmere Close last September after analysis of the couple’s bank account found she had made cash deposits totalling £483,000 over a four-year period and paid out £25,000 in travel costs.

She was sentenced at Isleworth Crown Court on Wednesday having admitted money laundering charges during a previous hearing.

Her husband Adegboyega Adeniji was sentenced to 30 years in prison at the same court in March, after he was found guilty of conspiring to smuggle a huge haul of drugs into the UK through Heathrow Airport.
