ANDREW PARSONS, the husband of Bicester beautician Janee, has appeared before magistrates this morning charged with murdering her.

The 38-year-old spoke only to confirm his name and age in a short appearance just after 10am.

Mrs Parsons, 31, was found dead in the couple's home in Lucerne Avenue, Bicester, by police on Saturday following reports of a disturbance.

Parsons, 38, was remanded in custody until an appearance at Oxford Crown Court this afternoon.

He appeared in court wearing a dark blazer and red shirt.
