Tests due in millionairess probe
A post-mortem examination is due to take place on the body of a woman believed to be missing millionairess Joanna Brown.
Officers investigating the 46-year-old's disappearance found a body in dense woodland in Windsor Great Park, Berkshire on Friday night.
Mrs Brown's husband Robert, also 46, appeared at Slough Magistrates' Court charged with her murder and was remanded in custody until Monday when he will appear at Reading Crown Court for a bail hearing.
A spokesman for Thames Valley Police said: "Officers attended the scene of where the body was discovered, following information received yesterday afternoon in connection with the disappearance of 46-year-old Joanna Brown from Ascot. Although a formal identification has not yet taken place, Joanna's family have been kept fully updated and continue to be supported by specially trained family liaison officers."
Earlier the court heard Mrs Brown is thought to have died a violent, unnatural or sudden death.
Police have spent the past few days scouring the densely wooded park for her remains. She was reported missing at 8am last Monday after a family member raised the alarm, concerned at not being able to contact her.
The couple's marital home, Tun Cottage, was run as an award-winning bed and breakfast by Mrs Brown after they separated. The mock-Tudor property, worth in the region of £3 million, is described on its website as a "beautiful English country home" and was awarded a four-star Gold Award by Visit Britain.
The pair, who married 11 years ago, were going through divorce proceedings when Mrs Brown went missing. They have two children, an 11-year-old boy and a nine-year-old girl.
Mrs Brown's family has described her as a "very special person", saying she was "loved and admired by everyone".
Brown, of North Street, Winkfield, is accused of murdering his wife sometime between Saturday and Monday. He is also charged with preventing a coroner from holding an inquest by disposing of her body in an unknown place.
