A man is set to appear before Ipswich magistrates tomorrow to be charged with the murder of Weybread couple Peter and Sylvia Stuart, police have said.

The 42-year-old man, who was detained on an European Arrest Warrant in Luxembourg on June 16, was collected by police officers from the Suffolk and Norfolk joint Major Investigation Team and Suffolk extradition officers and brought back to the UK earlier today.

He has been taken into custody at Martlesham Police Investigation Centre and is due to appear tomorrow morning at Ipswich Magistrates' Court, where he is due to be formally charged with the murder of Peter and Sylvia Stuart.

Mr Stuart was found with multiple knife wounds in woodland near his home on June 3.

Police are continuing to search for Mrs Stuart, who was last seen on May 29. Officers have said her disappearance is being treated as a murder.
