A man has appeared in court charged with murdering his father, who was found dead at a flat in Dorset.

William Spiller was found at a property in Lacey Court, Stedman Road, Southbourne, on Monday.

Mr Spiller, aged in his 40s, is thought to have died several weeks ago, police said.

Nathan Robinson, 26, from Kingswinford, near Dudley in the West Midlands, was remanded in custody to appear at Winchester Crown Court on Tuesday.
