Police were contacted at around 11am on Monday by a member of the public who was concerned for the office administrator's welfare.

Officers visited his home - also on Charles Pell Road - but found nobody there.

However, further enquiries resulted in his body being found in an uninhabited flat nearby at around 2am the next day.

Howsego and Williams appeared in separate short hearings at Colchester Magistrates' Court and were both remanded in custody.

No pleas were entered and the case was adjourned to Chelmsford Crown Court in September.
