Salmond, 40, of Farnhurst Road, Hodge Hill, Birmingham, and Flanagan, 39, of Redbrook Covert, Kings Norton, Birmingham, deny murder.

Salmond, who appeared by video link from a bed, also denies benefit fraud between May 8 and 31 2013, and preventing Bennett’s burial – charges which Flanagan has previously admitted.

Opening the case against the defendants on Wednesday, prosecutor Simon Denison QC said: “On Thursday May 9 2013, Lisa Bennett collected her daily Subutex prescription from the pharmacy in Selly Oak.

“She was never seen or heard from again by anyone who cared for her – her mother, who was in regular contact with her, her friends, support workers, her doctor, the pharmacy. She vanished.

“The two defendants reaped the benefit of Lisa’s disappearance by withdrawing Lisa’s benefit money from Kathleen Salmond’s bank account and spending it for themselves.

“When the police eventually came to question them about what had happened to Lisa, they each quite calmly said that she was alive and well – that she had asked them to transfer her benefits in Miss Salmond’s account and to withdraw it for her – and that her new boyfriend, who they called Ian, would collect it from them each week for Lisa.

“Lisa died in their flat on or around May 9 2013. Her body has never been found. She has no grave.

“The prosecution case is that the defendants murdered her, and then callously disposed of her body in the communal bins opposite their flat, where it lay undiscovered before the bins were emptied and the contents were taken to the council waste disposal facility a few days later.

“There, her body was incinerated with the community’s waste.
