Man in court over Forest Gate murder

A MAN is due in court today charged in connection with a murder in Forest Gate.

Paulius Korsakas, 27, of no fixed address, will appear before Stratford magistrates to answer a single count of murder.

The body of 37-year-old Igor Vinogradov, also of no fixed address, was discovered at a squat in Capel Road on Monday afternoon.

A postmortem gave the cause of death as severe blunt trauma injuries to the head.

Neighbours say the semi-detached house where the body was found had been boarded up for several years.
