A man has appeared in court charged with the murder of a woman found dead in her Cardiff Bay apartment.

Kris Wade, 36, of Cardiff, is accused of killing 65-year-old Christine James at her flat in Century Wharf some time between 25 February and 3 March.

Police were alerted after she failed to arrive at London's Gatwick Airport for a flight to Florida.

Mr Wade was remanded in custody ahead of a hearing at Cardiff Crown Court on Friday.

Mrs James is the mother-in-law of former Wales rugby captain Jonathan Humphreys.
