Man charged with assault after body found - Wigan
Wednesday 28th May, 2008

Detectives investigating the death of a 47-year-old woman in Wigan have charged a 28-year-old man with assault.

Shortly before 12.30pm on Sunday 25 May 2008, police were called to a house on Anderton Way, New Springs, Wigan, following a report that a body had been found.

Officers attended and discovered the body of a 47-year-old woman. It is believed she had been subjected to a vicious assault before her death.

The pathlogist's early findings suggest that the woman died of natural causes, but more tests are being carried out.

John Joseph Ward (born 5/11/79) of Malton Road, Mossley Common, Salford, has been charged with assault and was due to appear before Wigan magistrates today, Wednesday 28 May 2008.
