Man charged after woman found dead

A man has been charged with murder after a woman was found dead in a house.

The body of Denise Skilbeck was discovered at a property in The Wharf area of Newark on Wednesday evening.

A post mortem showed she died of a head injury, a spokesman for Nottinghamshire Police said.

He added: "Gary Spalding, 34, of The Wharf, Newark, has been charged with Miss Skilbeck's murder."

The police cordon, which had been in place around the house, has now been lifted.

Miss Skilbeck had lived in Newark for several years, although she is originally from Oxfordshire.
