The brother-in-law of a missing mother-of-three from Manchester has been charged in connection with her death.

Muhanned Mahmood Al Khatib, 38, of Arthur Millwood Court, Salford, has been accused of murder and perverting the course of justice, police said.

He is due to appear before Manchester City Magistrates' Court on Wednesday.

Rania Alayed, 25, from Cheetham Hill has not been seen since early June. Her husband Ahmed Khatib has already been in court accused of her murder.

He is due to appear at Manchester Crown Court for his next hearing on Wednesday.

Another of his brothers, aged 34, was originally arrested on suspicion of assisting an offender but has now been arrested on suspicion of murder and remains in police custody for questioning.

Mr Khatib's parents, a 64-year-old man and a 55-year-old woman, who were arrested on suspicion of assisting an offender, have been bailed until 19 August.

Ms Alayed, originally from Norton on Teesside, was reported missing from home on 2 July.

Police now believe she was last seen on 7 June at about 19:30 GMT on Rodney Street, near Arthur Millwood Court, Salford.
