A former police detective will appear in court charged with murdering his partner, who grew up in York. Peter Foster, 35, is accused of killing policewoman Heather Cooper, 33, who died after being hit about the head and stabbed through the throat at their home in Haslemere, Surrey.
The body of Miss Cooper, a mother-of-two and a detective constable with Surrey Police, was found by officers in Blackdown Woods near Lurgashall, West Sussex, in October last year. Foster has denied murdering Miss Cooper, who was on maternity leave after giving birth to a daughter weeks earlier.
A post-mortem examination at the Royal Surrey County Hospital confirmed death was caused by blunt force trauma to the head and a stab wound to the throat. Foster, who is in custody, is due to appear at Lewes Crown Court.
