Man extradited in connection with missing Cambridgeshire mum in court
A MAN extradited from Lithuania to the UK by police investigating the disappearance of a Cambridgeshire mother has appeared in court.
Lithuanian Vitalija Baliutaviciene, 30, has not been in contact with her 10-year-old son for more than six weeks and has not been seen since leaving her Peterborough home in Burmer Road, New England, on August 12.
Three people have been arrested in connection with her disappearance, including Rimas Venclovas, 46, who appeared before Peterborough magistrates on Saturday charged with the murder and kidnapping of the mother-of-one.
Venclovas was remanded in custody to appear at Peterborough Crown Court tomorrow.
He had been arrested in Lithuania on suspicion of kidnap and murder on August 31 and was extradited to the UK by Cambridgeshire Police detectives on Friday.
