The former boyfriend of graduate Catherine Wells-Burr appeared in court yesterday charged with conspiring to murder her.
Polish national Rafal Nowak, 31, lived in Chard, Somerset, with Catherine, whose body was discovered in a burned-out car next to the A358 at Ashill, Somerset.
He appeared at Bristol Crown Court along with fellow Pole Anna Lagwinowicz, 33, to face charges of conspiring to murder the 23-year-old.
Nowak and Lagwinowicz, of Taunton, Somerset, did not enter pleas during the brief hearing and were remanded in custody. A provisional trial date was set for April.
