Mother's appeal for shot daughter

The mother of a woman found shot dead in her car has made an appeal for information about her killing.

Stella Moore described 26-year-old Tania, from Alkmonton in Derbyshire, as "bubbly and fun loving".

Tania Moore's body was found near the village of Longford, near Ashbourne, Derbyshire, on Monday night.

Miss Moore, a keen horserider, was less than a mile from her home when she was allegedly run off the road and shot in the head at close range.

Detective Superintendent John Briggs said they were investigating a possible link between her death and a robbery at Miss Moore's home in June last year, in which she was beaten by two men with baseball bats.

Mr Briggs said a number of people in the area that night had contacted police but he still believed more potential witnesses had not yet come forward.

He also appealed for members of the riding community in the area to come forward and for information about anyone who may have had access to an illegal or fully licensed shotgun.

Stella Moore told the press conference at Derbyshire police headquarters on Friday: "My beautiful daughter Tania was bubbly, fun loving and would do anything for anyone.

"She was a talented horse rider and riding instructor.

"Just a mile from her home she was ambushed and her life taken away in a premeditated vicious murder at only 26 years of age."

Mark Dyche, 35, has been charged with two counts of making threats to kill and another of harassment against Miss Moore.

He has been remanded in custody and is due to appear before Derby and South Derbyshire magistrates next Thursday.
