Sarah Everard’s killer Wayne Couzens has denied a string of flashing charges.
Couzens, 49, is serving a whole-life sentence for the kidnap, rape and murder of the 33-year-old marketing executive in March last year, when he was a serving Metropolitan Police officer.
He faces four allegations of indecent exposure said to have taken place earlier that year in Swanley, Kent.
On Tuesday, Couzens, from Deal in Kent, appeared at the Old Bailey by video link from Frankland prison in Durham before Judge Mark Lucraft QC.
Wearing a grey sweatshirt, white-bearded Couzens initially spoke to confirm his identity.
Couzens, a former armed officer with the Met’s Parliamentary and Diplomatic Protection Command, formally entered not guilty pleas to four charges of indecent exposure.
They allege that he ‘intentionally exposed his genitals intending that someone would see them and be caused alarm and distress’.
The incidents are said to have taken place on four occasions: between January 22 and February 1, 2021, January 30 and February 6, on February 14 and February 27.
