Green was flanked by dock officers for the brief hearing, prosecuted by Graham Heath and represented by solicitor Sarah Hallett.

He is due to appear at Winchester Crown Court on Monday.

Chairwoman of the magistrates’ bench Sarah Wigley said: ‘Mr Green your case has been sent to the crown court on Monday, January 18 at 10 o’clock.

‘We are unable to consider bail in the magistrates’ court because you have been charged with murder.’

He was then sent down to the cells.

Earlier today a Hampshire police spokeswoman said: ‘Billy's next of kin have been informed and are being supported by specialist officers.’
