Youni was previously charged with two counts of preventing the lawful and decent burial of the victims in May.

He previously appeared at Kingston Crown Court charged with two counts of preventing the lawful and decent burial of the victim.

The Metropolitan Police launched a murder investigation after the women's clothed bodies were discovered fused together in a small chest freezer in a flat.

Detective Chief Inspector Simon Harding previously spoke of "truly shocking" way the women were murdered.

"Our heart goes out to these women’s friends and families," he said.

Henriett Szucs was a 34-year-old Hungarian national, while Mihrican Mustafa, 38, was a missing mother-of-three.
