The daughter and son-in-law of an elderly couple who went missing from Forest Town in 1998 have been charged with murder.

Susan Patricia Edwards (55) and 57-year-old Christopher John Edwards have each been charged with two counts of murder.

The pair, of no fixed address, will remain in police custody until their appearance before Nottingham magistrates on Saturday.

The remains of a man and woman were found buried in the back garden of a house on Blenheim Close on Wednesday 9th October.

Following a post-mortem examination, a Home Office pathologist determined both died as a result of being shot.

Formal identification has yet to be confirmed but detectives believe the remains are that of William and Patricia Wycherley who lived at the house in the 1990s.
