A man has pleaded guilty to murdering his wife.

Jacqueline Abbott, 54, was found with head injuries at a house in Lodge Crescent in Netherton, Dudley, in December last year.

Her husband, Paul Abbott, was subsequently arrested and admitted her murder when he appeared at Wolverhampton Crown Court on Monday.

The 56-year-old was remanded in custody to reappear at the same court next month.
