Murder charge after Stacey Mackie fire death
A 61-year-old man has been charged with murder after a woman died following a fire at a flat in Cumbria.
Stacey Mackie, 35, suffered serious burns during the incident at the supported accommodation in Crag View, Kendal, on Friday.
She was taken to a specialist burns unit, but later died.
Terrence Michael Armer, from Buttery Well Road, Kendal, has been charged with murder and a further offence of arson with intent to endanger life.
He will appear before magistrates in Kendal later.
Ms Mackie had lived at the property, which is a home for vulnerable adults, for about 18 months.
Following her death, her family said in a statement: "We are devastated by our loss, words can't describe how we feel.
"We are finding it difficult to come to terms with how someone could do this to a person like Stacey, she truly was one of a kind.
"She took everyone for what they were and never had a bad word to say about anybody."
