Klicneliene is charged with the murder of Dace Kalkerte, 50, who died at Lynn's Queen Elizabeth Hospital on Saturday.

Ms Kalkerte had earlier been found with serious injuries at a flat in Highgate, Lynn. Police have said a post-mortem concluded she died as a result of stab wounds to the abdomen.

No pleas were entered during today's hearing. An application for bail, made by Klicneliene's barrister Nicholas Maggs, was rejected by Judge Alice Robinson.
