A man has been charged with the murder of a 47-year-old mother whose body was found at a house in Liverpool.

Emergency services were called to The Green at about 4.55pm on November 25 to reports Malak Adabzadeh had been found in a house in Stoneycroft, said Merseyside Police.

Ms Adabzadeh – who the force said was Iranian, lived in the area and was also known as Katy – was pronounced dead at the scene.

A Home Office post-mortem examination confirmed her cause of death as head trauma.

Mohammad Ureza Azizi, 57, of The Green, Stoneycroft, was charged with her murder on Friday.

He has been remanded in custody to appear at Liverpool Magistrates’ Court on Saturday.

A 21-year-old man from Stoneycroft and a 46-year-old man from Norris Green, who were arrested on suspicion of murder, remain on bail with conditions.

Following Ms Adabzadeh's death, her family previously paid tribute to her in a statement, saying: "Katy was a loving mother, lovely sister, wife and daughter.

"She was generous, kind and would always help anyone. Katy will be missed terribly. "As a family we ask for the community's support at this time to find out what has happened to our beloved Katy."
