Tahira Ahmed case: Wife 'found decapitated after row'

A mother of two found dead at her home in west London had been decapitated, the Old Bailey has heard.

Tahira Ahmed, 38, was discovered by police on 27 May in the living room of her house in Merton Avenue, Northolt after neighbours heard an argument.

A post-mortem examination found both her arms had been broken. It also found she had been stabbed and decapitated.

Ms Ahmed's husband, Naveed Ahmed, 41, has been charged with her murder and was remanded in custody.

He will next appear on 18 August.

During the hearing, the court was told the couple had lived together for 14 years.
