A 32-year-old man accused of murdering landscape architect Jo Yeates has been remanded in custody until next week.

Miss Yeates, 25, was found dead on Christmas Day, eight days after going missing from her home in the Clifton area of Bristol.

Her frozen body was found in Failand on Christmas Day, three miles from where she lived.

Engineer Vincent Tabak, who was arrested on Thursday, appeared before Bristol Crown Court.

Lawyers for the 32-year-old Dutch national declined to make a bail application.

Mr Tabak will appear in the same court on Monday, charged with killing the 25-year-old.

Miss Yeates, who was originally from Ampfield in Hampshire, was reported missing by her boyfriend Greg Reardon on 19 December, when he returned to their home after a weekend away visiting family in Sheffield.

She had disappeared on 17 December after going for Christmas drinks with colleagues at her architectural firm.

A police operation began after her body was found on the verge in Longwood Lane, Failand.

A post-mortem examination revealed she had been strangled.

Mr Tabak lived next door to Miss Yeates on Canynge Road.
