Man accused of ‘meditation’ murder

A British motivational speaker has been indicted in the US on charges he killed a Las Vegas woman during a meditation session and stuffed her body in a rubbish barrel.

Michael Victor Lane’s court-appointed lawyer, Dan Silverstein, said Lane will plead not guilty on Thursday in a Nevada state court to murder and robbery with a deadly weapon charges filed by a grand jury last Friday. A preliminary hearing was cancelled.

The 37-year-old Lane was held in custody over the killing of 44-year-old Ginger Candela.

Prosecutors allege Lane killed Ms Candela in November and fled to California.

Lane was arrested on December 3 at a motel in Ventura, California. Authorities said he was using Ms Candela’s name and credit card and still had her maroon Toyota sport utility vehicle.

  • I knew him, and was scammed by him as well, I can very much say, “He is NO BUDDHIST”. He will say he is anything to get people to like him, very much like a snake and slither his way into your life.
