A DONCASTER man has been charged with murder after the body of a 46-year-old woman was found in the boot of her car.

Raymond Billam, 63, of Guilford Road, Wheatley, was set to appear in front of magistrates on Tuesday morning.

The body of Joy Billam was found in the boot of her purple Ford Fiesta Fusion parked just a few hundred yards from her home.

Post mortem results revealed the woman, of Garden Street, Goldthorpe, died from strangulation.

A 16-year-old boy from Doncaster has been charged with assisting offenders in connection with the murder.

He was also set to appear at Barnsley Magistrates’ Court on Tuesday.

The car was parked on Doncaster Road, near to the junction with the A635, around midday.

Police are appealing for anyone who saw the car being parked after 7pm on Friday to contact the incident room on 01709 443541.
