A sailor murdered his wife and deliberately sank their catamaran to inherit her legacy and put an end to their "marital quarrel," claimed prosecutors.

Lewis Bennett, from Poole, Dorset, smuggled rare stolen coins when he was rescued only off the coast of Cuba without Isabella Hellmann, the mother of his child.

Public prosecutors in the US have for the first time described in detail what they consider to be Bennett's motives after the FBI had promised him murder.

Court papers filed this week also revealed Ms. Hellmann's family tapped her apartment in Delray Beach, Florida, to listen to Bennett's conversations because she suspected him in her disappearance.
