Two people, Adam Kaminski and Justyna Swiatek both aged 26 and of Union Court, Boston, are both accused of murdering Marcin Stolarek.

Adam Maksajda, 33, of no fixed address, also appeared in the dock accused of perverting the course of justice in relation to the murder.

All three appeared before Lincoln Magistrates earlier on Monday.
