Man in Court Over Oxford Granny Murder

22 May 2012, 12:30

A man charged with the murder of a "devoted" grandmother from Oxford has been remanded in custody when he appeared in court.

Stewart Dale, 27, is accused of killing Jenny Hume, 55, whose body was discovered at a property near Oxford in the early hours of last Friday.

Police were called to an address in Prospect Park, Horspath, at 2am.

A post-mortem examination found Ms Hume, a divorcee from Hamel Walk, died from a blunt trauma injury to the head. She also suffered stab wounds during the attack.

Thames Valley Police released a tribute from Ms Hume's family.

It said: "She was a mother of three and a devoted grandmother of three. Her main interests were looking after her grandchildren and in her spare time she also enjoyed horse-riding.''

Dale, from Prospect Park, appeared at Oxford Crown Court and will be there again in August for a plea hearing.
