A man has appeared in court, charged with the murder of a woman who died 14 years ago after being attacked while walking her dog.

Vikki Thompson, a mother-of-two from Oxfordshire, was found badly beaten and unconscious at the side of a railway line near her home in August 1995.

The 30-year-old, from Ascott-under-Wychwood, died six days later.

Mark Weston, 34, from the same village, was remanded in custody at Oxford Crown Court.
