Tetra Pak millionaire heir Hans Rausing was bailed when he appeared in court charged with preventing the lawful and decent burial of his wife Eva.

Rausing, who looked frail in the dock at West London Magistrates’ Court, was granted conditional bail to appear again at Isleworth Crown Court on July 26.

Police discovered the body of mother-of-four Mrs Rausing in an advanced state of decomposition after they arrested her husband on suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs last Monday.

Mrs Rausing, one of Britain’s richest women, was found beside a bed in an annexe on the second floor of the opulent house in Cadogan Place in London’s Belgravia, which she shared with her 49-year-old husband.
