THE wife of a Radcliffe shopworker has been remanded in custody accused of her husband's murder.

Lana Yadgari appeared before Manchester City Magistrates on Tuesday to face a charge of murdering Abdul Sameh Yadgari.

Mr Yadgari (35), who worked at the Touch of Spice takeaway in Church Street, died from multiple stab wounds in Blackley last week. His body had been found near a burning car.

Mr Yadgari of Northridge Road, Blackley, was a father of two girls, aged 13 and 11, and a boy aged eight. Lana Yadgari will now appear before the crown court on October 27.

Three men, including a 17-year-old and a 28-year-old from Bury, were also arrested in connection with the incident. They were released on bail by police pending further investigations.
