A MAN has been charged with the murder of a South Yorkshire woman whose body was found in the boot of her car.

Raymond Vernon Billam, 63, of Guilford Road, Wheatley Park, Doncaster, appeared at court yesterday accused of killing Joy Billam, 46, of Garden Street, Goldthorpe.

A 16-year-old Doncaster boy, who cannot be named for legal reasons, appeared at court accused of assisting an offender.

Billam was remanded in custody. The teenager was granted bail and will appear at Barnsley Magistrates’ Court in November.

The victim’s body was discovered in the boot of her purple Ford Fusion parked on Doncaster Road, near the A635, at midday on Saturday.

She had been strangled.
