A German man has been charged with the murder of Ryanair cabin steward Christophe Borgye, whose body was found buried under an outhouse in Ellesmere Port more than three years ago.

Mr Borgye was discovered wrapped in a duvet cover and tarpaulin, entombed in a cement structure inside the outhouse of a property on Hylton Court on May 13, 2013.

Twenty-eight-year-old Manuel Wagner, who used to live in Ellesmere Port but now lives in Toxteth in Liverpool, has been remanded into custody and will appear before Chester Magistrates Court on Thursday morning (September 8).

A spokesman for Cheshire police said: "The charge is in connection with the death of Christophe Borgye at a house on Hylton Court, Ellesmere Port.

"The 36-year-old French national was reported missing in May 2009.

"Human remains were removed from the property on May 16, 2013, and subsequently identified as that of Christophe Borgye."

Two men - Sebastian Bendou, 36, and 35-year-old Dominik Kocher, of New Abbey in Dumfries - were jailed for murdering Mr Borgye following trials at Chester Crown Court in 2014.

Bendou was sentenced to life in prison with a minimum of 14 years behind bars, while Kocher was also handed a life sentence but ordered to serve a minimum of 22 years behind bars.
