The partner of missing novelist Helen Bailey has been charged with her murder.
Ian Stewart, 55, who is due to appear at Hatfield Remand Court on Saturday, was charged after the body of the 51-year-old Electra Brown author was found in the garden of her home in Royston, Hertfordshire.
Police said Stewart, of Baldock Road in Royston, has also been charged with perverting the course of justice by reporting Ms Bailey as missing and hiding her body, and preventing a lawful burial.
A post-mortem examination is due to take place on Monday while specialist searches at her home continue.
