A 26-YEAR-OLD man has appeared in court charged with killing a mother-of-two by driving dangerously.

Thomas Lee, of Money Road in Caterham, faces once count of causing death by dangerous driving over the death of Kremena Mersinkova, 40, in Godstone Road on February 16.

He appeared at Croydon Magistrates' Court on Wednesday where he spoke only to give his name and address.

His case was sent to Croydon Crown Court, and he did not indicate how he planned to plead.

The highways maintenance worker was granted conditional bail by district judge Teresa Szargun.

He must live and sleep at home, not contact Emma Nelson or Adam Christian, nor drive.

He is due to appear next at Croydon Crown Court on December 11.

Dressed in a suit and black jacket, Mr Lee was accompanied at court by his mother, with whom he lives.

Court listings show he was represented by Tuckers solicitors, but his defence lawyer refused to give his full name to the Advertiser.

Mrs Mersinkova's husband, Plamen Mersinkova, sat at the back of the court. Prosecutors say Mr Lee hit Mrs Mersinkova, from Whyteleafe, while driving a Citroen Saxo.

She and her husband were walking home in the early hours after working night shifts as cleaners at University College London hospital.

Mr Lee was charged earlier this month.

After Mrs Mersinkova death, her husband spoke of his painful loss.

He previously told the Advertiser: "She was the perfect mum, the perfect wife; she was a perfect human being."

He added; "It's the biggest loss for us as a family that we could possibly suffer. Nobody could ever replace her in our hearts."
