A 25-year-old Polish man has appeared in court charged with murdering a mother who was reported missing earlier this month.

Piotr Moczulski, of Newgale Walk, Leamington Spa, Warwickshire, has been charged with the murder of Elzbieta Kinczyk, 23, who lived in the town.

Magistrates at Nuneaton remanded him in custody and he was ordered to appear at Warwick Crown Court on 22 June.

A body found at Chesterton has yet to be formally identified.

The body, of a woman, was discovered late on Wednesday and the Warwickshire force has confirmed that it is thought to be that of Mrs Kinczyk.

Mr Moczulski, who was charged on Friday, is accused of killing Mrs Kinczyk, a mother-of-one, at Chesterton, on a day between 6 June and 16 June.

He spoke only to confirm his personal details and the name of his solicitor, during the brief hearing.

Officers are continuing to appeal for witnesses who saw anything suspicious in the area of Windmill Hill Lane, Chesterton, on 7 June to contact them.
