IPSWICH - A man accused of the murders of five prostitutes in eastern England was remanded in custody after a brief court appearance yesterday.
Steven Wright, 48, who was arrested on December 19 after one of the UK's biggest manhunts, is charged with killing the women, whose naked bodies were found dumped over 11 days around the town of Ipswich in Suffolk.
Wright, dressed in a black suit and surrounded by three security guards, spoke only to confirm his name during the 10-minute hearing at Ipswich crown court.
Wright was remanded in custody until May 1 when he will enter a formal plea.
He is charged with the murders of Gemma Adams, Tania Nicol, Anneli Alderton, Paula Clennell and Annette Nicholls.
Newspaper reports say Wright is a forklift-truck driver and a former steward on the Queen Elizabeth II cruise ship.
He has three children and two former wives, according to reports. - Reuters
