A third murder suspect accused over the Christmas Eve assassination of the brother of a Real Housewives of Cheshire star was remanded in custody on Wednesday.

Estevan Munizaga is part of a trio accused of murdering Flamur ‘Alex’ Beqiri, 36, who was shot in front of his wife Debora Krasniqi and young child on the doorstep of his £1.5m family home in Battersea, southwest London, last December 24.

Munizaga, 34, was flown from Sweden to Heathrow Airport on Tuesday in connection with the murder.

He spoke through a Spanish interpreter to confirm his name and date of birth during a short hearing at Westminster Magistrates’ Court.

Munizaga was remanded in custody ahead of a preliminary hearing at the Old Bailey on Friday.    

Tobias Andersson, 31, and Anis Fouad Hemissi, 23, both from Sweden, have already been charged with his murder. 

Andersson appeared at court on Monday via video link from HMP Wandsworth following his extradition to the UK from Sweden last week.

He is charged with murder and faces a plea and trial preparation hearing at the Old Bailey on 26 January next year.    

Hemissi, from Malmo, denies murder and possession of a handgun earlier this year.

In a court hearing on Monday, Catherine Farrelly, prosecuting, alleged that Andersson met with alleged gunman Hemissi in the days leading up to the assassination.

She claimed Andersson flew to Britain to provide Hemissi with a disguise and firearm.  

In addition, last month Clifford Rollex, 30, of Islington, north London, was charged with perverting the course of public justice in connection with the murder.

He was bailed to next appear at Wood Green Crown Court on November 30, the Metropolitan Police said.   

Mr Beqiri was peppered with bullets in front of his screaming wife and his child outside their £1.5million home in Battersea, south-west London, by a lone attacker. 

The brother of former Real Housewives Of Cheshire star Misse had just returned to the family home on Christmas Eve at 9pm when he was shot dead. 

Mr Beqiri was a Swedish citizen of Albanian origin who had left Malmo for London nearly five years ago.
