(Scroll down for video) A court was told that a man killed his wife and burned her body because he wanted to hide the fact that he is a homosexual, prosecutors in the United Kingdom announced.

The gay bank employee beat his wife with a vacuum cleaner and burned her in an incinerator just months after their marriage.

Jasvir Ram Ginday is accused of burning Varkha Rani, while telling a neighbor that he had set fire to junk, the Wolverhampton Crown Court heard.

Ginday, 29, of Walsall, admitted to a manslaughter charge but denies murder. The court heard that Rani, 24, married Ginday in India, and moved to the United Kingdom to live with him after obtaining a visa.

Back in 2008, Ginday told a friend that he was attracted to men. A month before the murder, Ginday did an Internet search for incinerators.

Ginday initially told police that his wife had left him after getting into the United Kingdom. The prosecutor told the court that Ginday wanted to play the role of a victim, knowing that he could rely on his married status as an excuse not to have sex with another woman.

Ginday also admitted to a charge of perverting the course of justice by lying to police. In the video below you can see the police activity at the victim’s home.
