A MURDER victim, who was found dead in her back garden, has been named as Elaine Flanagan.
Just after midnight on Tuesday, police received a call from a member of the public who reported concerns for her welfare.
Officers attended and her body was found at the property on Wigan Road, Leigh.
Her husband, Thomas Flanagan, was arrested shortly afterwards and has since been charged with her murder.
The 57-year-old is due to appear at Liverpool Crown Court today following an appearance at Wigan Magistrates’ Court on Wednesday.
