Man in court after murder-charge extradition
A 39-year-old man appeared in court today after being extradited from Spain to face a charge of murdering a mother of three.
The body of 38-year-old Sarah Thomas was found after police and the ambulance service attended an address in High Street, Nutfield, Surrey, following a 999 call shortly after 6pm on May 10.
A post-mortem examination found that Miss Thomas had suffered a number of injuries including a stab wound to the neck.
Following extensive searches of the local area around Nutfield, a kitchen knife was later found.
Police named their prime suspect as David Baxendale and he was later arrested in the resort of Fuengirola on the Costa Del Sol by Spanish officers.
Surrey Police officers escorted Baxendale back to the UK on a flight from Madrid yesterday.
He appeared before Guildford Magistrates' Court this morning charged with murder.
He was remanded in custody until a bail hearing at Guildford Crown Court on Tuesday.
