Murder suspect Julian Felisi worked along side the man he is accused of killing, it has been confirmed.

Mr Felisi, 37, worked as a bin man for Watford Borough Council, the same job held by murder victim Gary Bennett.

Police raided Mr Felisi's home, in Whippendell Road, at 5am on Tuesday morning.

He appeared at Hatfield Magistrates' Court yesterday, where a preliminary hearing was arranged for March 30 at St Albans Crown Court.

Mr Bennett, 46, was found with severe head wounds in Aldenham Country Park on February 24 at 8.50am.

Mr Felisi's occupation was confirmed this morning by a Watford Borough Council spokesman.
