Banaz Mahmod, 20, disappeared from her family home in Mitcham, south London, in January 2006 and her body was discovered in Handsworth, Birmingham, three months later.
Omar Hussain, 30, of Messenger Road, Smethwick, Birmingham, appeared before Greenwich magistrates charged with her murder.
He is also accused of the attempted kidnap of Rahmat Suleimani, Miss Mahmod’s boyfriend, and with attempting to pervert the course of justice.
Hussain was remanded in custody to appear at the Old Bailey on Tuesday, March 23.
Miss Mahmod’s father, Mahmod Mahmod, an uncle and a third man were jailed for life in 2007 for the killing.
Miss Mahmod began a relationship with Mr Suleimani after leaving an unhappy arranged marriage.
Her father, Mahmod Mahmod, uncle Ari Mahmod and a third man, Mohamad Hama, wer jailed for life in 2007 for the killing.
Mr Suleimani was deemed unsuitable because he did not come from the small group of villages in Iraqi Kurdistan where the Mahmods originated.
