Forty-one-year-old Barbara Ann Quinn was found dead in a car in Greymouth on Saturday, after she had been reported missing.

A Greymouth man was charged yesterday with murder and one count of assault.

He appeared in the Christchurch District Court this morning with a cast on his left arm, and was remanded in custody.

The man did not seek bail and was granted interim name suppression.

He will appear in the High Court in January.
