The boyfriend of a 23-year-old Russian woman found dead in her flat in Streatham has appeared in court charged with her murder.
Felipe Lopes, 27, was remanded in custody at Bromley Magistrates' Court and will appear at the Old Bailey on Tuesday, Scotland Yard said.
Lopes was arrested in Bromley on Wednesday morning after police discovered the body of Anastasia Voykina in a house in Streatham at around 2am on Monday.
A post-mortem examination gave her cause of death as multiple fractures to the face, head and neck.
A missing person report for Ms Voykina was made on Sunday after people she knew became concerned.
Officers attended a maisonette in James Boswell Close, Streatham where they found her body.
