Woman found in pub freezer was shot in head

A woman whose body was found in a pub freezer was shot in the head, police said today.

Rebecca Thorpe's body was found by police last week in an outbuilding at the Compasses Inn, Snettisham, Norfolk, where she worked.



A post-mortem examination revealed that she died from a gunshot wound to the head, a Norfolk Police spokesman said.



Michael Tucker, 49, was arrested on the Isle of Wight and taken to Norfolk to be questioned by detectives.



Tucker, of Lynn Road, Snettisham, who lived with 29-year-old Ms Thorpe, was charged with her murder last Friday.



He was remanded in custody at Norwich Crown Court until his next court appearance on April 9 where he is expected to enter a plea.
