Double murder charge.

A British businessman in Australia and his personal assistant will fight an extradition request from Singapore over a double murder.

Prosecutor Daniel Caporale told Melbourne Magistrates Court that Michael McCrea, aged 44, from Nottingham, and Audrey Ong, aged 22, will face a four-day extradition hearing in November.

Caporale said McCrea and Ong would contest their extradition. McCrea is wanted for two counts of murder in Singapore after the bodies of his driver and a woman were found in a car in the car park of Singapore's Orchards Towers last January.

Ong, McCrea's Singaporean personal assistant, is wanted on two counts of disposing of evidence. McCrea's chauffeur Kho Naiguan was strangled and stuffed into a wicker basket on the back seat of his own car. The body of the chauffeur's girlfriend was in the boot, it is alleged.
