The 21-year-old was due to marry Kayleigh Gill but she died when the car they were in crashed with a lorry.

Evans, from Tavistock, Devon, was coming home from a trip to Egypt with his fiance, when the crash happened.

He appeared before magistrates today and spoke only to confirm his name, before the case was sent to Essex Crown Court.

Evans was granted unconditional bail until then.

Kayleigh had two children, aged one and three, who survived the collision. She died in hospital four days after the crash.

Her brother paid tribute to her in January, after her death.

Sean, 24, said: “She was a fun-loving, easy going, kind of girl; she loved nothing more than her kids.

“She always thought about other people first, she always came last.

“She was much-loved by everyone in the community – she will be sorely missed by everyone.

“She loved going on holiday to Egypt, she would go two or three times a year, and had done for the last five years.”

The next hearing will be held at Exeter Crown Court on October 4.
