The boyfriend of Chard murder victim Catherine Wells-Burr appeared at Bristol Crown Court today to deny murdering her. The 23-year-old's body was found in her burnt-out car near Ilminster last September.
Rafal Nowak, 31, was remanded in custody along with two other Polish nationals who also deny the murder. There will be a further hearing on 18 March.
Police are at the scene this morning, where exactly a week ago a 23-year-old woman's body was found in a burning car.
They want to speak to motorists who may have information about the death of Catherine Wells-Burr. People travelling along the A358 will be asked to cast their minds back to Wednesday [12th] when Miss Wells-Burr's body was found.
The officer leading the investigation is keen to hear from anyone who may have been in the area at the time - in particular anyone who saw a red Ford Focus 5 door hatch back in company with another vehicle.
Today, Catherine's 31-year-old boyfriend Rafal Nowak will appear in court charged with conspiracy to murder her. Mr Nowak's former partner was in court yesterday to face the same charge.
