Three women arrested in connection with the death of a nurse have been bailed.

The body of Rui Li, 44, was found in a car in Verwood Crescent, Bournemouth, on Friday night. She died from head injuries.

The women, aged 25, 28 and 65, and from Bournemouth were detained on Tuesday on suspicion of assisting an offender.

Ms Li's husband, Pierre Legris, 60, appeared at Winchester Crown Court on Wednesday charged with his wife's murder.

He was remanded in custody until 22 September.

Mr Legris is accused of murdering the 44-year-old at his home in Burnham Drive, Bournemouth, between May 22 and May 31.

Police appeal

Meanwhile police have appealed for anyone who had contact with Mr Legris' son, Jonathan, between 20 and 30 May, to contact them.

Jonathan Legris, 26, faces charges of assisting an offender and is on bail to appear at Bournemouth Magistrates' Court on 17 June.

Ms Li was last seen alive by her 18-year-old daughter, Lu Yao, at their home in Burnham Drive on the evening of 23 May.

The nurse was captured on CCTV earlier that day as she drove out of the car park at Poole Hospital in her Porsche Boxster car after finishing work.

Ms Li moved to the UK from China a decade ago and had worked at the hospital since 2009.
