A man has appeared at court in connection with a triple murder inquiry in Cambridgeshire.

The bodies of three men, who had all been stabbed, were found dumped in ditches in the Peterborough area.

Robert Moore, 55, of Belvoir Way, Peterborough, appeared before the city's magistrates charged with assisting an offender.

He was remanded into custody until 22 April when he will attend the city's crown court. He did not enter a plea.

Mr Moore is one of six people arrested following the deaths of Kevin Lee, Lukas Slaboszewski and John Chapman.

Mr Lee, 48, was found in a ditch in Newborough on 30 March.

The bodies of Mr Slaboszewski, 31, and Mr Chapman, 56, were found at Thorney Dyke on 3 April.

A 30-year-old woman remains in custody at Thorpe Wood police station.

A 36-year-old man appeared at Peterborough Crown Court on Wednesday, charged with perverting the course of justice.

He was remanded in custody and will appear at court again on 20 June.

A 47-year-old man arrested in Hereford last week has been released pending further inquiries.

Two men, aged 23 and 32, are currently on bail.

Detectives investigating the deaths have appealed for information about the last known movements of Mr Slaboszewski and Mr Chapman.
