Police have charged a man with killing a mother more than a decade ago.

Nijole Siskeviciene, 44, from Lithuania, was found dead in Wembley, west London, in 1998. She had been strangled.

James Citro, 53, of Weston-Super-Mare, appeared at Brent Magistrates' Court in north-west London charged with her murder.

Her son Vytautis Siskevicius has spent the past decade campaigning for justice for his mother.

He said in December: "My mum never met my girlfriend and she would have loved to spend time with my daughter, her granddaughter.

"She was always the one who gathered all the family together at Christmas and since she has gone the family have not done that."
