One of the last people to see Harjit Chaggar alive has told a murder jury of the "jovial person who always had a great big smile on her face".
Doctors' surgery administrator Karen Mitchell spoke to the 69-year-old Chatham pensioner just minutes before she was alleged to have been battered to death.
Ms Mitchell told the court: "Harjit then gave me a great big smile and left the surgery. She did not say where she was going when she left the surgery and did not say when she would be back in."
The administrator said on that day Mrs Chaggar was wearing a orange and gold two-piece suit.
"When she walked out of the surgery that was the last time that I saw her," she added.
"The following day a member of Harjit's family came to the surgery, I think in the morning. I was informed that Harjit had gone missing.
"When she left the surgery I was not able to see which way she went."
Her body was found 12 days later in the Sani Globe grocery store in Luton Road, Chatham.
