Woman charged with widower's murder

Detectives have charged a woman with the murder of an 82-year-old widower who disappeared shortly after moving house.

Ann Browning, 53, from Miltons Crescent, Ockford Ridge, Surrey, is accused of the murder of Bill Williamson.

She is due to appear at Guildford Magistrates' Court on Monday.

Her 30-year-old son, who was also arrested in connection with the investigation, has been released on police bail pending further inquiries.

A body found in the garden of an address in Miltons Crescent is believed to be that of Mr Williamson, who was last seen alive on September 10, but this has not been confirmed by police.

Mr Williamson used to live in Church Road, Milford, near Godalming, but moved to Miltons Crescent in early September after selling his own home.

A post-mortem examination on the body was carried out but the results were inconclusive.

Formal identification of the body has yet to take place,a Surrey police spokesman said.
