Lester Aisthorpe, 58, of Basil Drive, Downham Market and Steven Louro, 42, of South Lynn Plain, King’s Lynn, have both been charged with the murder of Jan Hogan in May 2010.

Both men also face a charge of perverting the course of justice.

Father-of-five Mr Hogan’s body was found in his flat in Basil Drive, on 23 May 2010.

Detectives from the Major Investigation Team (MIT) carried out an investigation into his case at the time.

Both men have been charged following further investigation by the Norfolk and Suffolk MIT.

Last year Mr Hogan’s family joined officers in renewing their appeal for witnesses in relation to the circumstances surrounding their father’s death.

Aisthorpe and Louro have been remanded in police custody to appear before Norwich Magistrates Court on Friday, November 2.
