A 34-year old man arrested on suspicion of the murder of James Brodie has been bailed.

James Brodie, who was 19, is believed to have gone missing shortly after jeweller Marian Bates was shot dead during a robbery at the Time Centre, Arnold, in September 2003.

Last week searches at Maize Farm, in East Heckington, Lincolnshire, resulted in a number of samples being sent off for further scientific tests.

Dean Betton, 32, of Raleigh Street, Radford, has been charged with James Brodie’s murder.

A 31-year-old man, who was also arrested on suspicion of James Brodie’s murder, was released on bail, pending further enquiries.
