The daughter and son-in-law of a couple found buried in a garden have appeared at crown court charged with their murders.

William and Patricia Wycherley disappeared in 1998 and remains thought to be theirs were found at their former home in Nottinghamshire on 9 October.

Susan Patricia Edwards and Christopher John Edwards were charged with their murders on Friday.

If still alive, Mr and Mrs Wycherley would now be 100 and 79 respectively.

Police found the remains at the home in Blenheim Close, Forest Town, Mansfield, following a tip-off.

Post-mortem tests have revealed that each person died as a result of being shot.

Mr and Mrs Edwards, aged 57 and 55 and of no fixed address, were arrested in London on Wednesday evening.

They are charged with the murders between 1 and 31 May 1998.

They were remanded into custody after appearing at Nottingham Crown Court and are due to appear at the same court on 15 November.
