The brother-in-law of a missing mum-of-three, originally from Teesside, has been charged in connection with her death.

38 year old Muhanned Mahmood Al Khatib, of Arthur Millwood Court, Salford, has been accused of murder and perverting the course of justice, police said.

He's due to appear before Manchester City Magistrates' Court later.

25 year old Rania Alayed, who moved from Norton to Cheetham Hill in Manchester in January, hasn't been seen since early June.

Her husband Ahmed Khatib has already been in court accused of her murder.

He is due to appear at Manchester Crown Court for his next hearing on Wednesday.

Another of his brothers, aged 34, was originally arrested on suspicion of assisting an offender but has now been arrested on suspicion of murder and remains in police custody for questioning.

Mr Khatib's parents, a 64-year-old man and a 55-year-old woman, who were arrested on suspicion of assisting an offender, have been bailed until 19 August.

Ms Alayed was reported missing from home on the 2nd of July.

Police now believe she was last seen on the 7th of June.
