Man in court over body in wood
Officers searching the wood near Bidford
Police comb the area where the body was found
A 31-year-old man has appeared in court charged with the murder of a man whose body was found in a wooded area of open countryside in Warwickshire.

The body of Michael Kelly, who was 35 and from Worcester, was found by a farmer in a copse near Bidford on Avon last week.

Gerald Edwards, also from Worcester, was remanded in custody by magistrates on Monday charged with his murder.

Mr Edwards was arrested by West Mercia police.

A second man arrested was released without charge.

West Mercia police took over the case from the Warwickshire force when it was discovered that Mr Kelly came from Worcester.

A post mortem examination on Friday revealed that Mr Kelly died from head injuries.
