Godalming woman charged with murdering widower

Bill Williamson Bill Williamson went missing days after moving home in early September

A 53-year-old woman has been charged with murdering an 82-year-old widower from Surrey following the discovery of a body in a garden in Godalming.

Ann Browning was charged on Saturday with murdering Bill Williamson, who had been missing since 10 September.

The body was found in the garden of her home on Miltons Crescent, Ockford Ridge, Godalming on Friday.

It has not yet been formally identified and a post mortem examination carried out on Friday was inconclusive.

Ms Browning is due to appear before Guildford magistrates on Monday.

A 30-year-old man also arrested in connection with the investigation has been released on police bail pending further inquiries.

Mr Williamson used to live in Church Road, Milford, near Godalming, but moved to Ockford Ridge in early September after selling his own home.
