Peterborough suitcase torso: Man charged with murder in court
A man charged with murdering a woman whose torso was found in a suitcase has been remanded in custody for three months.
The body of Ramute Butkiene, 42, was found with no arms, legs or head, at a house in Mayor's Walk in Peterborough on 5 June.
Vytautas Jokubauskas, 57, of Mayor's Walk was charged with her murder and appeared at the Old Bailey in London.
He will be expected to enter a plea when he appears next on 4 September.
The torso was found after other tenants in the shared house reported a smell and called police.
A post-mortem examination failed to establish how Ms Butkiene died.
Officers said "some body parts" had been found and searches were continuing.
The mother-of-one was an agency worker in the city, Cambridgeshire Police said.
