Waiting for Video...

Archive file footage of house where Nottinghamshire Police discovered the bodies of William and Patricia Wycherley buried in their back garden and the accused couple arriving in a custody van at Nottingham Crown Court.

A woman and her husband have admitted burying her parents in the back garden of their home nearly 16 years ago. Susan Edwards, 55, and her husband Christopher, 57, denied murdering William and Patricia Wycherley at an earlier court hearing. During a plea hearing at Nottingham Crown Court today, the couple each pleaded guilty to two charges of obstructing the coroner in the execution of his duty and the theft of a credit balance. The Wycherleys disappeared from their semi-detached house in Mansfield in 1998. Police launched a murder investigation after two sets of human remains were recovered from the garden of their home last October. Post-mortem examinations showed both had been shot.
