A woman has appeared in court charged with conspiracy to murder 23-year-old university graduate Catherine Wells-Burr.
Anna Julia Laqwinowicz, 32, has stood before magistrates in Bristol after Miss Wells-Burr's body was found inside her burning car on Wednesday morning in Ashill, near Ilminster, Somerset.
The Polish national is charged with conspiring together with other persons to murder Miss Wells-Burr between May 1, 2012 and September 13, 2012.
The defendant, who is the ex-partner of Miss Wells-Burr's boyfriend Rafal Nowak, spoke only to confirm her name, age and address during the brief hearing.
She had an interpreter with her in court.
No application for bail was made and reporting restrictions were not lifted.
The defendant, of South Street, Taunton, Somerset, was remanded in custody and is scheduled to appear before Bristol Crown Court on October 9.
