Man accused of UK prostitute murders remanded in custody


The man accused of murdering five prostitutes in Britain has been remanded in custody after appearing in court. Steven Wright, who is 48, will reappear on May 1 to enter a formal plea of guilty or not guilty. Wright, a truck driver and reportedly a former steward on a luxury cruise ship was arrested a week before Christmas. He is charged with the murders of Gemma Adams, Tania Nicol, Anneli Alderton, Paula Clennell and Annette Nicholls. Their naked bodies were found dumped over an 11-day period around Ipswich in eastern England. Detectives launched the murder hunt on December 2 when Gemma Adams’ body was found in a stream. Another man arrested in connection with the inquiry has been released on police bail pending further inquiries.
