A man has been charged with murder following the death of a mother in Horspath, Oxfordshire, yesterday.

Stewart Dale, aged 27, from Prospect Park in Horspath was charged with murder this afternoon. He has been remanded in custody and will appear at Oxford Magistrates’ Court on Monday morning.

Detective Inspector Kevin McGuire, from Thames Valley Police, said: “We can now confirm the woman who died is Jenny Hume, aged 55, from Hamel Walk in Oxford.

“The post mortem was completed late last night and the cause of death was determined as blunt trauma injury to the head. The victim had also suffered stab wounds.”

In a statement her family paid tribute to her: "She was a mother of three and a devoted grandmother of three. Her main interests were looking after her grandchildren and in her spare time she also enjoyed horse-riding."
