Margate flat murder charge discontinued

The case against a man charged with the murder of another man in Kent has been discontinued.

The body of Nikita Panarins, 24, was found at an address in Hawley Square, Margate, on 12 November 2009.

Renes Kutkevics, 25, of Hawley Square, was charged with murder but the case at Maidstone Crown Court was discontinued on evidential grounds.

The Crown Prosecution Service said there was insufficient evidence for a realistic prospect of conviction.

The case against Mr Kutkevics was discontinued on 24 March.
