    The boyfriend of an antiques dealer was being questioned over her murder last night.

    Robert Webb, 52, is suspected of bludgeoning Robyn Mercer, 50, to death after she kicked him out of their £850,000 home.

    The BT engineer, who was spending his second night in custody last night, was arrested within minutes of her body being found in a pool of blood.

    Neighbours said the mother of two had split up with Webb but he had refused to leave their semi-detached house in West Molesey, Surrey.

    The will of a murder victim was falsified by her boyfriend in an attempt inherit her £420,000 estate, a court has heard.

    Robert Webb, 53, allegedly faked the will of antiques dealer Robyn Mercer after she was bludgeoned to death at her home in March last year.

    Ms Mercer, 50, was found in the front garden of her home in West Molesey, Surrey and murder squad detectives say she was beaten to death with either an axe or machete.

    Staines Magistrates Court heard that Webb is said to have falsified the mother-of-two's will on or before September 20.

    Thank you for starting the thread Alyce, he has not yet been charged with anything more than falsifying her Will but those injuries which killed her just scream "hatred". I would bet he knows far more/is involved far more than he is saying.

    “Webb appeared at Staines magistrates court this morning (1st March2017) charged with one count of committing fraud by false representation.
    He didn’t enter a plea to forging the will after her death.
    Prosecutor Charlotte Chirico said: “On the 14th of March, 2016 Ms Robyn Mercer was found on the driveway of the home that she shared with the defendant.”
    “They were separated at the time but living together.
    “Land registry records showed that the title of the property was registered to both.”
    Webb was released on bail to appear at Kingston crown court on March 28.
    JP Rachel Wellbelove said: “We are sending this matter, for this moment in time, for a pre-trial preparation hearing and that will be at Kingston Crown Court.”
    If found guilty he could face up to six years in prison.
    Robyn had worked for silver specialists J.H. Bourdon-Smith for the last 25 years.
    No-one has yet been charged in connection with her murder although four suspects are due to answer bail later this month.”

    Horrific. Nothing more I can add at this point.

    Just found this, from the investigation in October 2016


    Police say divers have uncovered an item "crucial" to the ongoing Robyn Mercer murder investigation during a search of an Oxshott lake.

    Under Surrey Police instruction, an expert dive team from Specialist Group International (SGI) started scouring Littleheath Common lake on Tuesday (October 18).

    Detective Inspector Paddy Mayers said: “The items recovered are all potentially significant but clearly one of the recovered items may be crucial to the investigation.

    A more informative article in the DM. Robyn had lived with Robert for 13 years inWalton Road West Molesey. The Daily Fail says the semi detached house is worth £850,000. I would be surprised if in Molesey that a semi would fetch that much but it is an expensive area. I have certainly seen the type in the photo (in my earlier post link) going for around £650,000. I was born about 6 miles from there and Hampton and Walton were old stamping grounds but I haven’t lived there for 40 years or so.

    It seems they had a 35/65 per cent split in the house with Robyn owning the larger share.

    12 sept 2016 Crimewatch appeal extract

    followed by a breakthrough from that broadcast http://www.getsurrey.co.uk/news/surr...eveal-11879680

    Speaking after the TV appeal, DCI Rymarz said: “We had some really interesting calls - we think we have the name of the dog walker who is seen on the CCTV and we are really keen to speak to anyone who might know who the two people are seen walking across the Walton Road. “Of course, the really key bit for us is around the weapon that was used in the case - anything more we could have would be really appreciated.”

    Here is a map of the murder area with road distances and times to Oxshott. I have superimposed the Little Heath Common Lake notation (in orange) which is to the south west of Oxshott.
