Court Hearing Over Pensioner Murder

A woman was remanded in custody today charged with the murder of a 82-year-old widower who disappeared shortly after moving house.



Ann Browning, 53, from Miltons Crescent, Ockford Ridge, Surrey, appeared at Guildford Magistrates' Court accused of the murder of Bill Williamson between September 9 and October 6 this year.

The case was adjourned and Browning will appear at Guildford Crown Court tomorrow.

A body found in the garden of an address in Miltons Crescent on Friday was believed to be that of Mr Williamson, who was last seen alive on September 10, but this has not been confirmed by police.

Mr Williamson used to live in Church Road, Milford, near Godalming, but moved to Miltons Crescent in early September after selling his own home.

A post-mortem examination on the body was carried out but the results were inconclusive.

Formal identification of the body has yet to take place.

Browning's 30-year-old son, who was also arrested in connection with the investigation, has been released on police bail pending further inquiries.
