An 81-year-old man charged with murder has been remanded in custody by a judge at Carlisle Crown Court.
John Michael Parry, of The Dale, Ainstable, appeared before Judge Paul Batty QC this morning (Thursday).
He was remanded to prison pending a bail hearing, expected to be heard within the next week.
He had been remanded overnight by North Cumbria Magistrates' Court at a five minute hearing yesterday afternoon.
Parry has been charged with the murder of his wife, Meryl Parry, 80, on Tuesday morning. Her body was found at a house in the remote hamlet.
