James Brodie 'murder' case: Samples taken at Maize Farm, East Heckington
Detectives searching for a teenager who was wanted over the killing of a Nottinghamshire jeweller nearly a decade ago have taken samples from Maize Farm in East Heckington.
James Brodie, 19, has been missing since 2003, after 64-year-old gran Marian Bates was shot dead as she tried to protect her daughter at their family run store in Arnold, Notts.
The samples were taken at the Lincolnshire farm and have now been sent to experts for tests.
He has not made any contact with family or friends in more than nine years.
Dean Betton, 32, of Raleigh Street, Radford, Nottingham, this afternoon (Mon) appeared at Lincoln Crown Court by video-link charged with Brodie's murder.
Speaking from Lincoln Prison, where he is remanded, Betton spoke only to confirm his name. No pleas were entered and there was no application for bail.
Judge Michael Heath remanded Betton in to custody until his next court appearance. He will next appear for a review hearing at Lincoln Crown Court on 29 April.
Last week, Nottinghamshire Police searched land at Maize Farm, East Heckington, Lincolnshire, in connection with their inquiry.
Police said they have now completed their searches of the seven bedroom farmhouse.
A 31-year-old man, who was also arrested on suspicion of James Brodie's murder, has been released on bail pending further inquiries.
