Partner in court over suitcase body


Andrew Lindo is to appear at Huddersfield Magistrates' Court charged with the murder of mother-of-two Marie Stewart

A man is due to appear in court charged with the murder of his partner, whose body was found inside a suitcase in their garage.

Music teacher Andrew Lindo, 28, will appear at Huddersfield Magistrates’ Court charged with the murder of mother-of-two Marie Stewart, 30.

Her body was found at her home in Perseverance Place, Holmfirth, West Yorkshire, on Sunday.

A post-mortem examination carried out on Monday showed her death was caused by multiple stab wounds and blunt force trauma.

Police found Ms Stewart’s body after they were contacted on Saturday morning by relatives who were concerned because they had not seen her since Christmas.

Ms Stewart’s father, Robert Stewart, told BBC Look North the family were “devastated” by her death.

“She was a loving mother who would do anything for her children,” he added.
