A man has been charged with the murder of Emma Baum.

David Nicholas Davies from Trefor was arrested on Tuesday, on suspicion of killing the mother-of-one at her Penygroes home in the early hours of Monday.

The 25 year old appeared before magistrates in Caernarfon this morning – he spoke only to give his name and address. Davies was remanded in custody until he appears before a judge at Mold Crown Court next Tuesday.

A woman bailed on suspicion of perverting the course of justice and assisting an offender is still under investigation. Two men arrested on Monday were later released without charge.

Earlier on Thursday, detectives said Ms Baum had died from severe head injuries following a sustained attack, in which a bladed weapon was thought to have been used. Her body was discovered at a house on Llwyndu Road, some six hours after reports of a disturbance in the area.

The officer leading the murder inquiry, Detective Superintendent Iestyn Davies said: ”Despite an individual being charged with murder, increased police presence in the village will continue to provide reassurance and a point of contact for anyone to provide further information. 

”Detectives from the Investigation Team will also continue to conduct enquires locally and I’d reiterate my appeal that should anyone have any information that will help us fully understand the sequence of events that led to the discovery of Emma’s body, then I’d ask they contact police.”
