    It's Ifield not Ilfield.

    I kind of think they might have said if it was a child. Maybe I'm wrong.

    The victim was a woman, thought to be in her 20s. Her identity is still not known. She died of smoke inhalation, sadly, which means she was alive as the car burned. :(

    It seems very unusual to arrest someone before they know the identity of the victim.

    i think the '34 year old woman from Dulwich, London' they arrested on a charge of 'conspiracy to murder' has probably supplied information on both victim and the male they are seeking, as she has been released on bail until 30th March. They wouldn't normally bail someone that quickly on such a serious case, unless the individual had been very co-operative.

    Man charged with murder of student, 21, found dead in boot of burned out car after she vanished from hospital

    Detectives have charged a man with murdering a student who was found dead in the boot of a burned out car a day after going missing from hospital.

    Christopher Jeffrey-Shaw, 26, is accused of killing Janet Muller, 21, a University of Brighton student who was studying at its Eastbourne campus in East Sussex.

    Firefighters found her body in the back of a badly-burned Volkswagen Jetta, which had been dumped in a road by Ifield Golf Club near Horsham, West Sussex.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


    Man appears in court on murder charge after woman's body found in burned-out car's boot

    The 26-year-old was remanded in custody and ordered to next appear before the judge on April 9.

    Miss Müller was reported missing from Mill View Hospital in Hove the day before her body was found in Rusper Road, Ifield, shortly after 2.30pm on Friday.

    Prosecutor Amy Packham told the court that the psychiatric hospital provided inpatient treatment for people with mental health and substance abuse problems.

    It was not yet known how Miss Muller came to leave the hospital or her links to Jeffrey-Shaw.

    A post-mortem examination revealed that Miss Müller, from Eastbourne, East Sussex, died as a result of smoke inhalation.

    Detective Chief Inspector Karen Mizzi said: “Specially trained officers are supporting Janet’s family at this extremely difficult time.

    “Although we have charged a man with murder, I am appealing for information from anyone who may have seen Janet on Thursday night. She was last seen at Mill View at 10.15pm.

    “If anyone saw her leaving the hospital or walking in the area, we need to hear from you.”

    Christopher Jeffrey-Shaw to deny murder of Janet Müller, court hears

    By Dave_Comeau | Posted: April 09, 2015


    Jeffrey-Shaw, from Lakeside, in Beckenham, appeared via video link at today's hearing as dates for the plea and case management hearing and for the serving of court papers were discussed

    He displayed clear signs of irritation and boredom, stroking his goatee beard, picking bits out of his teeth and even picking his nose while listening to the proceedings.

    The only point at which he spoke was to confirm his name and when asked if he had heard and understood what had happened in court.

    He replied: "Yes, I have."

    As the judge told him he was remanded in custody at the end of the hearing, he simply nodded and got up to leave the room in which he was sitting.

    Mr Saeed asked that his client be brought to court for the next hearing, rather than appearing via video link.
