A businessman accused of murdering his wife has appeared in court.

Gurpreet Singh, 42, is charged with the killing of Sarbjit Kaur, whose body was found nearly three months ago.

The 38-year-old was discovered unconscious by family at her detached house in Rookery Lane, Penn, Wolverhampton, on February 16.

A post-mortem examination determined she died from asphyxiation.

Singh appeared for a brief hearing at Birmingham Magistrates' Court on Thursday charged with murder, West Midlands Police said.

He was remanded in custody and will appear at Birmingham Crown Court on Monday.
