A Haggerston man has appeared in court accused of murdering an 80-year-old woman whose body was found in an allotment in Colindale.

Rahim Mohammadi, 40, of Goldsmiths Row, is charged with killing Lea Adri-Soejok before dumping her body inside a lock-up store at the allotments in Sheaveshill Avenue.

Mrs Adri-Soejok, who was also well-known by her maiden name of Lea Hulselman, had been reported missing last Tuesday at 1.40am and her body was discovered by police 25 minutes later.

A post mortem report revealed she had been strangled.

Mohammadi was arrested on Friday and charged last night.

Today he appeared at Wimbledon Magistrates’ Court and was remanded in custody.

He will appear at the Old Bailey on Wednesday.

Detectives investigating her killing will be in the area of the allotments between 2pm and 6pm today.

They will be speaking to local residents and motorists in the hope of finding potential witnesses.
