Cosham Murder: Man Remanded In Custody
A 49-year-old man has been remanded in custody charged with the murder of a retired police officer in Portsmouth.
Stephen Cowdrey, of St Augustine Road, Southsea, is accused of killing 87-year-old Stanley Carter at his home in Greenwood Avenue, Cosham, between 11 and 16 September.
He appeared at Winchester Crown Court for a brief hearing on Friday 20 September. He was remanded in custody and will next appear at the same court on 21 November for a plea and case management hearing.
Mr Carter's body was found by police on Sunday night (15 September) after officers received information about his death.
Cowdrey was arrested at Portsmouth central police station shortly afterwards.
A post-mortem examination has been carried out to establish the cause of death but Hampshire police say they are not in a position to release the preliminary results and officers continue to appeal for information.
Anyone with information can contact the Hampshire Major Investigation Team at Fratton Police Station by phoning 101 and quoting Operation Lock.
The 79-year-old man suffered a serious head injury in the Cranmer Road car park in Winton.
