Woman in court on murder charge

A woman will appear in court tomorrow charged with murder after a man's body was found at a flat.

Police were called to the property in Hartshill Road, Stoke-on-Trent just before 3pm on Monday after paramedics responding to reports that a man had collapsed found a body.

Samantha Adeokun, 40, from Albert Street, Silverdale, near Newcastle-under-Lyme, was arrested and will appear before magistrates on Boxing Day, Staffordshire Police said.

The man was named as 42-year-old Peter Davegun, who lived at the address. Specially-trained officers are supporting his family.

A post-mortem examination yesterday revealed Mr Davegun died from a "significant blunt force assault", police said.
