A man allegedly killed a father of three and secretly hid his body after discovering the man had an affair with his wife, a court heard.
Andrew Jones, 52, has been charged with the murder of Michael O’Leary, 57, and his body has not been found since he was reported missing eight months ago.
Jones allegedly killed Mr O’Leary after discovering messages about his wife Rhiannon, 51, on her iPad, the Swansea Crown Court heard.
Jones – the head of the successful AJ Builders family building firm – was arrested days after Mr O’Leary failed to return home from work.
Prosecutor William Hughes, QC, said the assassination was carefully planned and undertaken by Andrew Jones as well as the steps he subsequently took to cover up or destroy evidence of his crimes and in particular the destruction of Michael OLearys’s body.
There was a connection between Michael OLeary and Rhianon Jones. They attended the same gym and at one stage during 2019 they started an additional marital relationship.
But Jones became aware of the issue in September 2019 when she discovered messages on her iPad.
Mr Hughes said the messages between Mr OLeary and Mrs. Jones were intimate and graphic in content.
Mr Hughes told the jury: “This is a court – not a court of morality.
Andrew Jones became aware of this issue in 2019 after reading some messages on his iPad wives.
He confronted his wife and was told Michael OLeary did not want to leave his wife. His wife told him she did not love him anymore.
But despite the affair becoming known it continued.
The court heard Jones – along with his daughter Carrie – began monitoring Rhiannon Jones’s phone and movements.
Rhiannon Jones later got a secret phone call to keep in touch with Michael OLeary but her husband allegedly found her and used her to seduce his alleged victim until his death.
Mr Hughes said: He sent messages from her phone that led to his death.
Andrew Jones seduced Michael OLeary for his death at Cyncoed Farm.
Swansea Crown Court heard Mr. OLeary was reported missing after his wife and three sons received text messages from his phone saying: Sorry x.
The court heard that Mr OLearys’s car was found near a river, but despite a police search there was no sign of his body.
Mr Hughes said Jones seduced Mr OLeary on a farm he owned and killed him.
But Mr OLeary’s trail was undisclosed until the investigation opened on March 14.
Mr Hughes said: Human India from the small intestine was found in the home of Andrew Jones.
As part of the extensive search, a rusty barrel of oil was decanted at the bottom of this dough remained what was thought to be human tissue.
Mr Hughes said forensic analysis revealed it belonged to Michael OLeary and gave the appearance of burns.
Mr Hughes said although Mr OLearys’s body was never found human tissue was later found in a barrel of oil at Jones’s home.
The court heard that the tissue trace was part of a small intestine and forensic scientists believed it had been burned.
A major search began after his disappearance on January 27 with police patrolling forests, rivers and fields near his home in Nantgaredig, near Carmarthen.
Police later searched a landfill 30 miles away, but Mr O’Leary’s body was never found.
Mr OLeary, was married to wife Sian, 51, and left behind three sons, Wayne, 31, and twins Phillip and Simon, 27.
Jones, from Bronwydd, Carmarthen, denies the murder saying Mr OLeary died in an accident. The trial at Swansea Crown Court continues.
