April Jones accused due in court to face murder charge
The man accused of abducting and murdering April Jones is due in court tomorrow.
Mark Bridger, 47, is also accused of perverting the course of justice. No pleas have yet been entered to the charges.
April disappeared from outside her Machynlleth home on October 1 last year, prompting one of the biggest searches in British policing history.
That operation resumed this week after a Christmas break, with officers from forces across the country combing the mountains, valleys, forests and waters around the mid-Wales town.

Meanwhile April's parents - Coral and Paul - have released a new photograph of the five year old, showing her on the bicycle she was riding on the evening she disappeared. She had been allowed to stay out later than usual to play with friends after a glowing school report.
The hunt for April involves 16 teams of officers, each with a specialist search dog, and six expert police search advisers.
Dyfed-Powys Police have said the search will contine for as long as there are "viable lines of inquiry".
A spokeswoman for the force said: "The defendant, Mark Bridger, will be appearing at Mold Crown Court on January 14, 2013, for the Plea and Case Management hearing in relation to the offences of which he has been charged."
