A 34-year-old ski worker has appeared at court this morning charged with the murder of businesswoman Sadie Hartley. Sarah Williams was remanded in custody following a brief hearing before magistrates in Blackburn this morning. She is accused of killing the mother-of-two in a knife attack at her £450,000 home on Thursday. Ms Williams spoke only to confirm her name, date of birth and address.
She will appear again at Preston Crown Court on Friday. Detectives raided her buy-to-let property in Leasowe, Wirral, on Sunday, ripping up floorboards, searching garden bins and removing computers and phones.
Ms Williams was arrested on Saturday. A second woman, aged 55, was taken in for question by police on Monday. She was arrested and remains in custody.
