The former partner of millionaire's daughter Suzy Healey has appeared in court charged with her murder.
Richard George Holtby, 37, who did not give an address, was remanded in custody by Beverley magistrates.
He will appear before Hull Crown Court on August 31.
Ms Healey, 39, a divorced mother of two teenage daughters, was found dead at her home at Ellerker Hall in East Yorkshire on Monday. Holtby was arrested the same day in Scarborough.
It is alleged Ms Healey was killed the day before, Sky News reports.
A post mortem examination was carried out on the animal lover's body but police have not disclosed its findings.
Ms Healey's father Malcolm, who lives on a large estate near her home but spends a lot of time in America, made much of his Ј750m fortune after selling his Hygena kitchen business.
His brother Eddie netted around Ј420m after selling his stake in Sheffield's Meadow hall shopping centre.
