A man has appeared at court charged with murder following the discovery of a man's burnt body which was found in a suitcase in Derbyshire.
Ming Jiang, 42, of Falconwood Way, Manchester, appeared at Chesterfield magistrates’ court this morning (Monday, October 24), charged with the alleged murder.
Standing in the dock wearing a grey jumper, grey jogging bottoms and black shoes, Mr Jiang spoke only to confirm his name and address.
Prosecuting, Becky Allsop, said: “This is a matter which must be sent to crown court.
“This is a case which relates to a finding of a torso in a suitcase on October 10 just outside Tintwistle in a rural area.”
Chairman of the bench, Gregory Hart, said: “You have heard what has been said.
“We cannot deal with it today.
“We have sent it to crown court for a further hearing.
“In a moment you will be remanded in custody.”
Mr Jiang was then led away in handcuffs.
He will appear at Nottingham Crown Court tomorrow (Tuesday, October 25).
