The wife of a doctor found dead in his home in Feock has appeared in court charged with his murder.

Marion Siobhan Hughes, of Trolver Croft, faced magistrates in Truro this morning over the charge relating to her husband Geraint Hughes, known as Gary.

The 58-year-old was remanded in custody and is now due to appear before Truro Crown Court this afternoon.

Mr Hughes was found dead last Friday.
