A British spiritualist minister was found guilty Monday of murdering his Emmy award-winning TV make-up artist wife and dumping her body in the woods.

David Chenery-Wickens, 52, killed 48-year-old Diane Chenery-Wickens in January last year after she began to unravel his web of sexual and financial lies.

On the day she was murdered, Diane Chenery-Wickens found out her husband had been cheating on her and had also called a gay chatline, Lewes Crown Court in Sussex heard.

Jurors convicted David Chenery-Wickens, of Duddleswell, near Uckfield, East Sussex, of murder following a trial lasting more than a month.

Diane Chenery-Wickens's credits included the BBC's Dead Ringers, The League Of Gentlemen and Casualty.

She won an Emmy in 2000 for Arabian Nights and received a Bafta nomination for Dead Ringers three years later.
