Woman found dead in Alum Rock: Husband Mohammed Liaqat Ali on murder charge

A mother who was reported missing when she failed to collect her children from school in Birmingham has been found dead.

The body of the 27-year-old woman was discovered at an address in Alum Rock.

Police found her in the early hours of Friday at a property on Pelham Road after a family member raised the alarm.

The woman's estranged husband, Mohammed Liaqat Ali, 37, was arrested shortly after and appeared before magistrates in Birmingham charged with murder.

Mr Ali, of Reginald Road in Alum Rock, was remanded in custody to appear at Birmingham Crown Court on 19 June.

A post-mortem examination has been carried out but West Midlands Police are still investigating the woman's death, a spokeswoman said.
