A MUM sobbed as she appeared in court today charged with murdering a man in a sleepy Somerset village.

Hayley Keating, 31, was arrested after Matthew Wormleighton, 45, was found stabbed to death at a home in Chilthorne Domer, near Yeovil.

The mum-of-two sobbed as she appeared at Yeovil Magistrates’ Court today.

Keating spoke only to confirm her name, date of birth and address during the short hearing.

She was remanded in custody to next appear at Bristol Crown Court on Wednesday.

Police were called to the home at 4.45am on Friday where they discovered Matthew injured.

He was rushed to hospital but couldn't be saved and died shortly after.

A post-mortem gave his cause of death as a single stab wound.

His family have been informed and are being supported by officers, Avon and Somerset Police confirmed on Friday.


The community has been told to "expect an increased police presence in the area" over the next few days while police continue to carry out investigations.

Police are also appealing for information.

They said: "If anyone has information about what happened and hasn’t yet spoken to the police, please call us on 101 and give the call-handler reference number 5221105035."
