Accused appeared at magistrates' court this morning
Mark Bridger, who has been charged with the abduction and murder of five-year-old family friend April Jones, wept during his first court appearance this morning.
Around 100 people heckled the van which drove him to Aberystwyth Magistrates’ Court and bottles and a shoe were also thrown at the vehicle.
The 46-year-old former soldier has been remanded in custody and will have a crown court hearing on Wednesday.
He is also charged with the unlawful disposal and concealment of her body with intent to pervert the course of justice.
April was abducted a week ago as she played in the streets of her home town.
Other children said they saw her get into a car.
She remains missing despite a detailed forensic search.
