The Harjit Chaggar murder trial jury have been told they can enjoy the Easter break - after listening to evidence for four weeks.
They have been sent home until April 22 after one of the defendants, who denies the charge, completed four days in the witness box.
Mohammed Islam - speaking through an interpreter - claimed that although he found the body of the 69-year-old pensioner - he played no part in her killing.
Prosecutor Bobbie Cheema QC said some Asian people use incense "for religious purposes" and asked Islam if they had been placed there "out of some form of religious act or respect" because he knew a woman had died there.
Islam replied: "No, we put those on there because the bad smell was causing customers to complain."
"She must have been held there against her will and thrown in the void under the floor. She did not fall in there by herself and did not cover herself up" - prosecutor Bobbie Cheema QC
"She must have been held there against her will and thrown in the void under the floor. She did not fall in there by herself and did not cover herself up."
Islam, 28, of Windmill Road, Abdul Hannan, 44, of Aldon Close, Maidstone; and Murshed Miah, 38, of Wheeler Street, Maidstone have all denied murdering Mrs Chaggar.
Rasad Miah, 27, of Otway Street, Chatham, has pleaded not guilty to preventing the lawful burial or cremation of a corpse.
Lawyers will meet on Wednesday in the absence of the jury for legal
discussions and final speeches will begin the following Tuesday.
