A woman has appeared in court accused of murdering a man 12 years ago after police found a body buried in a garden in Greater Manchester.

Remains, believed to be those of her father Kenneth Coombes, were found in Reddish, Stockport on Tuesday.

Ms Coombes, of Reddish, appeared at Manchester Crown Court.

Proceedings were adjourned until a plea hearing on 3 April, with the trial expected to begin on 9 July.
