A man charged with the murder of his mother at her home in Shropshire has been remanded in custody.

The body of Vera Roberts, who was in her 70s, was found at an address in Claypit Street in Whitchurch on Monday.

A post-mortem examination revealed she died from head injuries.

Kevin Roberts, 46, also from Claypit Street, appeared before Telford magistrates on Thursday. He will appear at Shrewsbury Crown Court on Monday.

Mr Roberts was arrested after a car accident on the A49, just over the Shropshire-Cheshire border, and appeared in court in a wheelchair.

There was no application for bail.
