A DOCTOR has been accused of trying to murder his wife.

Alfred Bediako Osei, 34, has been charged with the attempted murder of his wife Julia, who is also a doctor.

It follows an alleged incident at the couple's home in Shrewsbury Way, Saltney, Chester, at 12.04pm on Friday.

A Chester police spokesman said on Saturday: 'A woman is in a stable condition at the Countess of Chester Hospital after she was rushed there with severe facial injuries.

'The police were called to a domestic incident at the address, and a man was arrested for attempted murder.'

Osei appeared before Chester magistrates on Monday afternoon and was 'fast-tracked' to Chester Crown Court, where he will appear next Monday.

He was remanded in custody until then.

Osei has not entered any plea to the charge yet.

The court heard he is accused of grabbing his wife by the throat and biting her face. The couple worked together at the Countess of Chester.
