    (I've put the date as when she was found, from the link it seems she could have been murdered as early as Friday 12th May).

    This happened very near to my friends house. She knows someone who knew Sinead and says there was an affair going on. A convoluted source I know. We shall see.

    This is from last month. Five now charged:
    _______________

    Akshar Ali, 26, and Yasmin Ahmed, 26, today pleaded not guilty to the murder of Sinead Wooding.


    [...]

    Asim Ali, 20, of Kings Road, Hyde Park, Aktahr Bi, 44, of Kings Road, Hyde Park, and Vicky Briggs, 25, of Reginald Mount, Chapeltown, pleaded not guilty to assisting an offender.

    The charge against Asim Ali relates to "procuring a vehicle to dispose of the corpse of Sinead Wooding and assisting in the disposal and burning" of her body to impede the apprehension and prosecution of Akshar Ali and Yasmin Ahmed.

    The charge against Briggs relates to "assisting in the cleaning up and burning of material following the murder of Sinead Wooding."

    Bi is accused of making arrangements for the procurement of a vehicle to dispose of the corpse of Sinead Wooding.

    All five defendants are to go on trial on November 13 this year. The trial is expected to last around five weeks.

    Also, the IPCC are investigating:
    _______________

    West Yorkshire Police referred the matter to the IPCC shortly afterwards, as Ms Wooding had made a 999 call to West Yorkshire Police on May 10.

    Today the IPCC confirmed it had decided to independently investigate the force's response to this call, and any subsequent actions taken by police up to the discovery of her body.

    I was wondering about this too, I've found very little on the victim (one FB post from a cousin saying she was a mum of 4 ) and nothing regarding trial.

    A MOTHER-of-four was murdered by her husband and his friend in a suspected knife and hammer attack at a house in Leeds, a jury was told. Prosecutors claim her husband Akshar Ali, 27, and his friend Yasmin Ahmed, 27, murdered her at Ahmed’s home in Reginald Mount Potternewton before the body was stored in the cellar for two days.

    The court heard Miss Wooding and Ali had argued after drinking during a party at the house on Thursday May 11. Prosecutor Nicholas Campbell QC said Miss Wooding had started to convert to the Islamic faith and changed her name to Zakirah before she met Akshar Ali, who worked on a food stall at Leeds indoor market. The court heard the couple signed a marriage contract after an Islamic Nikah ceremony in February 2015. Mr Campbell said it was a “volatile” and sometimes violent relationship and that Miss Wooding had continued to visit a female friend and her family after he had “forbidden her from visiting.

    So just to clarify the relationships and various roles of the defendants in the murder

    Akshar Ali, 27, was the husband.
    Yasmin Ahmed, 27, was the husband's friend.

    They stand jointly accused of the murder. Sinead had multiple stab wounds and was also hit on the head repeatedly with a claw hammer.

    Aktahr Bi, 45, is the husband's mother, and stands accused of making arrangements to dispose of Sinead's body, which had lain in the cellar for two days.

    Asim Ali, 21, is the husband's brother accused of finding a vehicle to move the body and assisting in the disposal and burning of the body.

    Vicky Briggs, 25, is Yasmin Ahmed's friend accused of helping to clean up and burn material after the murder.

    Opening the prosecution case, Nicholas Campbell QC told the jury that in the early hours of Sunday May 14 student Lydia Gunning, a neighbour on Reginald Mount, was woken by the sound of car doors being opened and closed in the street outside her bedroom window.

    Mr Campbell said: "About five minutes after that she saw the same two people coming out of the back entrance of number three. "They were carrying what looked to her like a body. Each was carrying their own end of the body and both were struggling to do it. "The body appeared to Miss Gunning to have been wrapped in a sheet or maybe some carpet. She saw them carry the body out of the yard and place it into the boot of the Golf.

    Student Lydia Gunning initially dismissed what she had scene as ‘lots of strange things happen around here’, before reporting it to police.
