Ian Stewart has appeared in court today charged with the murder of his first wife, Diane – more than three years after he was convicted of murdering fiancée Helen Bailey and dumping her body in a cesspit at their Royston home.
Stewart, who is 59 and originally from Letchworth, attended the hearing at St Albans Crown Court earlier today – where deadlines for submitting paperwork were discussed. The plea hearing will take place on September 21.
Diane Stewart, died on June 25, 2010, aged 47 at the Bassingbourn home they shared. A re-investigation into her death began after Stewart was convicted of the 2016 murder of children’s author Ms Bailey.
Current proceedings have not been reported on due to legal restrictions, which have now been lifted.
