The husband of a nurse found dead in a car in Bournemouth has appeared in court charged with her murder.

The body of Rui Li, 44, was found in a car in Verwood Crescent in the town on Friday. She was last seen on 23 May.

Her husband, Pierre Legris, 60, appeared at Bournemouth Magistrates' Court but did not enter a plea.

He is accused of murdering Ms Li at his home in Burnham Drive, Bournemouth. He was remanded in custody to appear at Winchester Crown Court on Wednesday.

His son, 26-year-old Jonathan Legris, faces charges of assisting an offender and has been bailed to appear at the same court on 17 June.
