A man has appeared in court charged with murdering his wife who was found stabbed to death at their family home.
Andrew Parsons is accused of murdering his wife Janee at their home in Lucerne Avenue in Bicester, Oxfordshire.
The 38-year-old appeared before Oxford Magistrates' Court, which transferred the case to the city's Crown Court.
His case was then adjourned to appear again at the Crown Court on February 11, when he is expected to enter a plea.
He was remanded in custody until then.
American-born Mrs Parsons was found by police after they were called to her detached home on Saturday.
Despite attempts by officers and ambulance staff to resuscitate her, the 31-year-old was declared dead at hospital.
A post-mortem examination found that the mother of two died from multiple incised wounds, Thames Valley Police said.
Detective Chief Inspector Joe Kidman, who is leading the investigation, said: "We are are keen to speak with anyone in Lucerne Avenue who may have important information to help us establish the circumstances of this tragic incident."
