Southbourne death: William Spiller's body parts 'kept in boxes'

A man found dead at a flat in Dorset was dismembered and his body parts put in plastic boxes, an inquest has heard.

William Spiller, 48, was discovered at the property in Lacey Court, Stedman Road, Southbourne, last Monday.

His son Nathan Robinson, 26, from Kingswinford, near Dudley in the West Midlands, has been charged with murder.

The inquest, which was opened and adjourned in Bournemouth, heard the cause of death was unascertained and further tests were required.

Police have previously said they believe Mr Spiller died several weeks before he was discovered.
