The husband of beautician Janee Parsons yesterday denied murdering his wife.

Andrew Parsons, 38, is accused of killing the 31-year-old, whose body was found in the family’s home in Lucerne Avenue, Bicester, on December 1 last year.

The mother-of-two died from stab wounds.

Parsons appeared at Oxford Crown Court yesterday to deny the charge and was remanded in custody. He will appear in court on May 13 for a trial estimated to last between seven and 10 days.
