Bride murder police quiz father

Police are continuing to question the father of a newly-wed bride who was shot dead in Nottinghamshire.

Terry Rodgers, 55, was arrested on Monday, following a four-day woodland search by more than 400 officers.

Police using dogs and helicopters equipped with heat seeking cameras had combed Annesley Woods, near Kirkby-in-Ashfield.

Chanel Taylor was killed in her home in Huthwaite on 30 July, a few miles from where her father was found.

Her body was discovered by her husband, Lee - they had married just seven weeks earlier.

Supt Stuart Wright said on Tuesday: "There was evidence that Mr Rodgers had been living in the woods for some time, however the shelter was not substantial.

"Today a forensic examination of the shelter is taking place along with the surrounding area of woodland."

Mr Rodgers was deemed to be fit and well by a police surgeon following his arrest, police said.

A spokesman said he was neither malnourished nor dehydrated.

Det Ch Insp Paul Cottee, of Nottinghamshire Police, confirmed on Monday that Terry Rodgers had been found.

"During a major search operation in the defined area he was arrested by armed police officers and has been taken to an undisclosed police station in the county where he will be examined by a police surgeon."

Mr Rodgers was living with his daughter at the time of her death after the break-up of his own marriage.

The massive police search of the woods earlier located Robert Boyer, 42, who has since been charged with murder.
