Carr on fraud charges.

Maxine Carr, the ex-fiancee of Soham murderer Ian Huntley, arrived at court today to answer allegations of benefit fraud and lying about her qualifications in job applications.

Carr, who is serving a three-year jail sentence for conspiring with Huntley to pervert the course of justice, arrived in a prison van at Peterborough Magistrates' Court in a high security police operation. Dozens of police officers patrolled outside the building and a helicopter hovered overhead.

Carr, 27, has been charged with seven allegations of deception and five of attempted deception.

The charges relate to claims for housing benefit, income support and jobseeker's allowance and applications for various jobs.

Carr, from Grimsby, Lincs, worked as a classroom assistant at St Andrew's Primary School, Soham, Cambs. Huntley, former caretaker at Soham Village College, was jailed for life at the Old Bailey in December after he was found guilty of murdering ten-year-olds Holly Wells and Jessica Chapman.

Carr was jailed for three years at the same trial but was cleared of two charges of assisting an offender.
