A 34-year-old Redditch man has appeared in court charged with the murder of a Birmingham teenager whose body was found at a waste management site in London.
The body of 17-year-old Nathan Lyons was discovered at a waste site in Crayford last Tuesday, after apparently being transported through the recycling system from Redditch.
Scott Hancox, of Fownhope Close, is charged with murdering the teenager.
Hancox spoke only to confirm his name and address during a brief hearing at Redditch Magistrates' Court.
He was remanded in custody to appear at Worcester Crown Court on May 22.
