Man, 29, in court charged with killing Megan Newborough, 23, who was found dead on country lane

A MAN has appeared in court today charged with the murder of Megan Newborough, whose body was found dumped in a country lane.

Ross Macullam, 29, is accused of killing 23-year-old Megan, who was discovered near Woodhouse Eaves, Leicestershire, in the early hours of Sunday.

Megan, from Nuneaton, was reported missing to Warwickshire Police on Saturday afternoon.

Searches were conducted in Leicestershire following inquiries.

Alleged killer Macallum appeared emotionless at Leicester Magistrates' Court this morning.

Wearing a grey sweatshirt and grey jogging bottoms, he spoke only to confirm his name, date of birth and address during a brief hearing.

Macallum, of Coalville, Leicestershire, wasn't required to enter any pleas and was remanded into custody to appear at the city's crown court this afternoon.

After her death, Ms Newborough's family said: "There are no words to describe how much we as a family are completely heartbroken and devastated.

"Megan was the most generous, loving and caring person and we have been robbed of our treasured daughter."
