Lucy Clews died after police were called to Bath Road in West Chadsmoor, near Cannock, on December 29 last year after receiving reports of concerns over a woman's welfare.

The 39-year-old was pronounced dead by paramedics a short time later as the area was cordoned off.

Thomas Grant, of no-fixed-address, was charged with murder on Monday and appeared at the North Staffordshire Justice Centre on Tuesday.

The 26-year-old was remanded in custody ahead of a further court appearance due at Stafford Crown Court on Wednesday.

Meanwhile officers have urged people not to speculate over the case on social media amid concerns of prejudicing legal proceedings.
