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 Winchester Crown Court and was remanded in custody until 22 September.

Police have made an appeal for information about Mr Legris' son Jonathan Legris, 26, who faces charges of assisting an offender.

Blunt force trauma

They want anyone who had contact with the 26-year-old between 20 and 30 May to get in touch in confidence.

He is on bail to appear before Bournemouth Magistrates' Court on 17 June.

Three Bournemouth women, aged 25, 28 and 65, arrested on suspicion of assisting an offender, remain in police custody.

Pierre Legris is accused of murdering Ms Li at his home in Burnham Drive, Bournemouth.

An inquest into Ms Li's death heard she died from blunt force trauma to the head.

The court heard the results of toxicology and histology tests were still pending.
