A SON charged with his mother’s murder has been remanded in custody.

Neale James, 50, of Chichester, appeared yesterday at Lewes Crown Court. Brenda James, 78, was found in woodland at the Goodwood Estate last Thursday.

He is expected to enter a plea on June 3. A 46-year-old from Ipswich, Suffolk, remains in custody after being arrested on suspicion of Mrs James’s murder on Sunday.
