Brit charged with killing wife after body found on remote country road in Brittany
A British man has been charged with murder after his wife's body was found by a roadside in France.
According to the Daily Mail, Susan White's body was spotted by motorists close to the cottage she shared with her husband, David White, near the village of Tregonneau, in Brittany.
A postmortem examination revealed that Mrs White, who was 51, had suffered a fractured skull. According to local police sources, her body was also covered in bruises. Her husband is now expected to stand trial for her murder.
The Local reports that Mr White was 'incoherent' when questioned by police. He has been released, but restrictions have been placed on his movements.
According to investigators, traces of blood have been found near a van belonging to Mr White.
Mrs White, who was originally from Paignton, Devon, moved to Brittany with her husband seven years ago.
Her sister, Linda Johnson, told The Local: "My mother spoke to her just a couple of weeks ago and she seemed absolutely fine.
"If there is anyone who might have information on what happened to Susan then please come forward. That's all we can ask at this moment in time."
