A second man charged as part of a murder inquiry into the death of a jeweller in Bury St Edmunds has been remanded in custody.

The body of Peter Avis, 66, was found at his home above the Collis & Son shop in Abbeygate Street last Friday.

Pawel Borowiecki, 30, from Roslyn Road, London, appeared before Bury magistrates earlier, charged with conspiracy to commit burglary.

He was remanded in custody to appear at Ipswich Crown Court on 26 January.

Pawel Pacian, 34, of Lake Avenue, Bury St Edmunds, also appeared before magistrates yesterday on the same charge.

Mr Pacian was remanded in custody and is also due to appear at Ipswich Crown Court on 26 January.

Three men, aged 18, 26 and 34, and a 27-year-old woman have been released on bail after being held for questioning as part of the inquiry.

Post-mortem tests showed Mr Avis died of stab wounds.
