The daughter and son-in-law of an elderly couple who went missing from Mansfield have been charged with murder, say police.
Susan Patricia Edwards, 55, and Christopher John Edwards, 57, have each been charged with two counts of murder, according to Nottingham Police.
The pair, of no fixed address but who are believed to have been living outside the UK, will remain in police custody until their appearance before Nottingham magistrates tomorrow.
The remains of a man and woman were found buried in the back garden of a house in Blenheim Close, Forest Town, on Wednesday 9 October 2013.
Police have not yet formally identified the pair, but believe they are William and Patricia Wycherley, who lived at the house in the 1990s.
A police spokesman said: "A Home Office pathologist has determined that both people died as a result of being shot."
The elderly couple moved to the address in 1987 and according to neighbours, disappeared in 1998.
Officers have said Mrs Wycherley is believed to have been born in Fulham, west London, and would now have been 79. Her husband would have been 100.
Police said bone analysis has shed further light on the remains.
