Frenzied wife-stabber accounting student expelled by ACCA

ACCA has removed a murderer who stabbed his wife more than 60 times from its student register.

Nicholas Charles Smith, a financial adviser for Surrey County Council’s education department, was jailed for life for murder in July last year, age 33.

He killed his wife, Trudy, 32, in a ‘frenzied’ attack on 13 August in 1997 weeks after completing a set of ACCA exams.

ACCA’s disciplinary committee found that he was liable for disciplinary action under its bye-laws because he was convicted of murder.

It ordered that his name should be removed from its student register.
