A man and a woman have been charged on suspicion of conspiracy to murder in relation to a nurse who died from head injuries.

Rui Li, 44, was found dead in a car in Bournemouth on 30 May after she had not been seen for more than a week.

Her stepson Jonathon Legris, 27, and Irene Erosa Smith, 66, both from Bournemouth, are due at Bournemouth Magistrates Court on Saturday.

They have previously denied other charges in relation to the death.

The nurse was last seen on CCTV as she drove out of Poole Hospital.

Her husband and Jonathon's father, Pierre Legris, 60, pleaded not guilty to her murder and a charge of bigamy at a hearing at Winchester Crown Court in September.

Jonathon Legris previously pleaded not guilty to assisting an offender, while Ms Smith denied perverting the course of justice.

She also pleaded not guilty to a charge of assisting an offender by impeding his apprehension or prosecution.

A trial is due to begin for all three defendants at Winchester Crown Court on 5 January.
