Brothers face woman murder charge

Two brothers have been charged with murdering a woman who disappeared on Christmas Eve.

Sameena Imam was last seen at Costco in Torrington Avenue, Coventry, where she worked, West Midlands Police said.

The 34-year-old's black BMW car was found by detectives 65 miles away in Luton, on January 4, but there has been no other trace of Ms Imam, who lived in Cardiff.

Three days later, Roger Cooper, 40, of Tile Hurst Drive, Coventry, and David Cooper, 38, of Hughenden Drive, Leicester, were arrested at their homes and were yesterday charged.

Searches of both their addresses have been carried out.

Detective Superintendent Mark Payne, of West Midlands Police, called the murder charges "a significant development" in the case and said his thoughts were with Ms Imam's family.

The brothers are due to appear at Birmingham Crown Court later.
