A Kinmel Bay man accused of killing his partner has appeared in court.
Anthony Bird (48) is charged with the murder of mother-of-two Tracy Kearns, whose body was found on Saturday nearly a week after she disappeared.
Bird spoke only to confirm his name, address and date-of-birth at a brief hearing before Llandudno magistrates on Monday morning. There was no application for bail.
The murder charge was declared too serious to be dealt with by magistrates and Bird was remanded in custody. He will appear before a judge at Mold Crown Court tomorrow.
A post-mortem examination on Miss Kearns’ body was carried out over the weekend – an inquest is expected to be opened in due course.
