A man has appeared in court charged with the murder of a woman who died after being found with serious head injuries in Castleford.
Ricky Knott appeared before Leeds Magistrates Court earlier today over the death of 30-year-old Rebecca Simpson.
Ms Simpson died in hospital on Monday after being found seriously injured at a property on Smawthorne Grove.
Knott, 32, of Arnside Close, Castleford, did not enter a plea when he appeared before the court for the brief hearing.
The case was committed to Leeds Crown Court where Knott will appear before a judge on Monday morning, September 2.
He was remanded in custody until the next hearing.
