Here is my best explanation:

'charge' is the definition.
('accuse' can be a synonym of 'charge')

'copper in unusual case' is the wordplay.
'copper' becomes 'cu' (chemical symbol).
'in' means one lot of letters goes inside another.
'unusual' indicates anagramming the letters.
'case' anagrammed gives 'acse'.
'cu' placed within 'acse' is 'ACCUSE'.
