Julia James Death: Man Charged With Murder Of Police Community Support Officer Appears In Court | UK News

A 21-year-old man charged with the murder of Police Community Support Officer Julia James in Kent has appeared in court.

Callum Wheeler, of Aylesham, appeared before the Medway Magistrates’ Court on Tuesday.

He only spoke to confirm his name and address and was remanded into custody to appear at Maidstone Crown Court on Thursday.

The body of Mrs. James was discovered in Akholt Wood near his home in Snowdown on April 27.

Kent Police arrested Wheeler on Friday evening.

Deputy Chief Constable Tom Richards said police were not “actively” looking for other suspects in connection with his death.

“Today, we continue to call witnesses. I’m sure there were people in the area at the time that we want to talk to, ”he said.

“I have no information to suggest at this point that anyone is involved in this offense.

“We are not actively seeking further arrests at this stage.”

Police last week released an image of Ms James in the clothes she wore before she was killed.

The photo showed her in a light blue waterproof coat, blue jeans and dark brown Wellington-style boots, as she walked with her Jack Russell.

Police said it was the same clothes, other than gloves, that she wore on the day she died.
