A man has pleaded guilty to murdering his wife at their Oxfordshire home.

Sughra Rani, 30, was found by Thames Valley Police at a property in Mold Crescent, Banbury, after officers were called there on Tuesday, 16 September.

Mohammed Rashid, 35, of the same address, pleaded guilty to her murder at Oxford Crown Court on Monday.

Rashid, who spoke only to confirm his name and enter a plea, has been remanded in custody and will be sentenced on 5 December.

Speaking outside the court, Ms Rani's cousin, Saeema Anwar, said the family would never forgive him.

"He has brought shame to us all," she said.

"No matter what reason, or what situation he should not have done that.

"I hate him for it, I hope he rots in there."
