An 81-year-old man has appeared in court charged with the murder of his wife at a care home.

Michael Virgo was charged with killing Doreen Virgo, 89, after her body was found at Grays Fair Court care home in New Costessey, near Norwich on Friday.

Mr Virgo, of Mill Street, Buxton, Norfolk, appeared at Norwich Magistrates' Court on Wednesday and has yet to plead.

He was remanded in custody to appear at Norwich Crown Court on Thursday.

A post-mortem examination concluded Mrs Virgo died from "compression of the neck".
