His girlfriend, Shauna Hoare, 21, has been charged with perverting the course of justice by lying to police to help Matthews evade detection.

Karl Demetrius, 29, Donovan Demetrius, also 29, Jaydene Parsons, 23, and James Ireland, 23, have been charged with assisting an offender by helping to dispose and hide Becky's body parts.

All six defendants, who remain in police custody, will next appear before Bristol Crown Court for a hearing on March 26.

Specialist forensic examinations will continue for several weeks to establish the "full circumstances" surrounding the death of Becky Watts, police have said.

"There are specific forensic examinations which we need to complete to help establish exactly what happened to Becky.

Bouquets, teddies and cards have been left at the teenager's family home, as well as at Barton Court, and mourners have attended churches across the city to pay their respects.

Hundreds of multi-coloured balloons were released in memory of Becky at the weekend in an event attended by her father, Darren Galsworthy and stepmother Anjie.

Bus drivers in Bristol also wore black yesterday as a mark of respect to the teenager.

Matthews, of Hazelbury Drive, Warmley, was previously identified as the teenager's stepbrother - the son of Mrs Galsworthy - by family members.

Two fundraising pages to help Becky's family pay for her funeral have received more than £11,000 in donations.
