A man has appeared in court charged with the murder of a young graduate whose body was found inside a burning car.

Tadevsz Dmytryszyn, 38, is charged with the murder of Catherine Wells-Burr, 23, whose remains were discovered beside the A358 near Ilminster, Somerset, in September.

The Polish national spoke only to confirm his name and address during a hearing at Bristol Magistrates Court.

Bald Dmytryszyn, of Holway Avenue, Taunton, Somerset, spoke through an interpreter in the dock and was dressed in a navy hoodie and navy trousers.

He was charged with murdering Catherine Wells-Burr, together with her boyfriend Rafal Novak, 31, and Novak's ex-girlfriend Anna Julia Lagwinowicz, 32, at Ashill, Somerset, between September 9 and September 13 this year.

Catherine died an "unnatural death" before her body was found burned in her red Ford Focus car at 6.10am on September 12.

No application for bail was made and Dymtryszyn was remanded in custody to appear at Bristol Crown Court on November 29.
