A man charged with the murder of a 28-year-old Lincoln woman has today (Wednesday) appeared in court.

Casey Scott, 29, is accused of murdering Lenuta Ioana Haidemac whose body was found in a flat on Drummond Road, Skegness, last Friday.

It is alleged the murder happened between July 19 and 22.

Police had launched an appeal to trace Ms Haidemac after becoming increasingly concerned for her welfare.

Ms Haidemac, who lived in Lincoln, but also had connections to Boston and Skegness, was last seen after being dropped off in Drummond Road at around 10pm on Wednesday July 20.

Lincolnshire Police charged Scott, of Drummond Road, Skegness, with Ms Haidemac’s murder on Tuesday and this morning (Wednesday) he appeared in a glass panelled dock at Lincoln Magistrates Court flanked by security officers.

Wearing a grey top and jogging bottoms Scott spoke only to confirm his name, date of birth and address.

He was represented by Liz Hart.

There was no application for bail and the case was adjourned until tomorrow morning (Thursday) when Scott will appear before a judge at Lincoln Crown Court.

Scott was remanded into custody at the end of the two minute hearing.
