A person has been charged with the manslaughter of a woman who died several days after she is thought to have been assaulted.

Police believe Kelly Machin, 34, was assaulted on 23 August. She was treated at hospital but later discharged.

However, the ambulance service found her dead from internal bleeding in her Leicester home on Monday.

A woman, aged 28, from Leicester has been charged and will appear before the city's Magistrates' Court on Friday.

A 45-year-old woman and a 47-year-old man remain in police custody on suspicion of murder.

A post-mortem examination on Tuesday revealed Ms Machin died as a result of significant blood loss.

A 31-year-old woman has been released on police bail pending further inquiries.
