Husband admits murdering mum-of-four, 46, whose remains were found in beauty spot

A MAN has today admitted murdering his wife, whose remains were found at a beauty spot.

Thomas McCann, 49, faces life in prison after he pleaded guilty to murdering mum-of-four and grandmother Yvonne McCann.

She was found dead at Reddish Vale Country Park in Stockport, Greater Manchester, last May.

A murder probe was launched after a member of the public discovered Ms McCann's body on May 25.

Cops spend days combing the park before charging McCann with murder.

McCann, dressed in a black t-shirt, appeared via video link at a hearing at Minshull Street Crown Court this afternoon.


He was remanded in custody and will be sentenced at the end of the month.

No further details about the case were read out in court, Manchester Evening News reports.

Members of Ms McCann's family were in court to hear McCann enter a guilty plea.

After Ms McCann's death, her children paid a touching tribute to their "louder than life" mum.

They described her as the "bond that kept us all together".

Friends and family also paid tribute to Ms McCann, from nearby Brinnington, on social media sites.

One friend wrote “Please say it’s not true.”

Judge Alan Conrad QC told McCann: "I am going to fix the sentence date in this case as March 29, on which date you will be produced in court.

"You will be remanded in custody until then."
