A MAN and teenager were due to go on trial today over the murder of a Sheffield woman whose body was found in a Rotherham canal.

Ishaq Hussain, aged 22, of Ferham Road, Masbrough and an 18-year-old, who cannot be named for legal reasons, are charged with murdering 17-year-old Laura Wilson, pictured, last October.

The body of the young woman, from Hartington Close, Holmes, was discovered in the South Yorkshire Navigation Canal after she was reported missing.
