Lithuanian chambermaid killed days after moving from Kilburn to Wembley

A 53-year-old man has been charged with murdering a mother-of-one 12 years ago.

James Citro from Weston-Super-Mare is accused of killing Nijole Siskeviciene on 20 October, 1998.

The body of the 44-year-old chambermaid, who had lived in Charteris Road, Kilburn, was found outside a row of garages in Lancelot Road, Wembley.

Ms Siskeviciene, who came to the UK from Lithuania the year before with her teenage son, had moved to Wembley six days before.

Citro is due to appear before Brent Magistrates Court this morning (Saturday) charged with the historical murder.
