Man accused of murdering Eileen Jones in Bethnal Green

A man has been charged with the murder of a 73-year-old woman whose body was found in a house in east London.

Officers found the body of Eileen Jones in Virginia Road, Bethnal Green, on 23 March. A post-mortem examination was inconclusive, police said.

Christopher Newton, 45, of Bow Road, was charged with murder. He will appear at Redbridge Magistrates' Court later.

Two others arrested over the stabbing, a man aged 59 and a 46-year-old woman, have been bailed until May.

Further tests will be conducted on the victim, from Bethnal Green, to determine the cause of her death, police said.
