Jane Archbold murder probe: Son charged

The son of a 77-year-old Cumbrian woman found dead at her home has been charged with her murder.

Jane Archbold was found injured in her home in Outgate, south of Ambleside at about 22:00 BST on Tuesday.

Police said she had been assaulted and died despite efforts by the ambulance service to resuscitate her.

Cumbria Police said her 48-year-old son Robert Archbold, who lived at the same address, had been charged with murder and was due in court on Friday.

The results of a post-mortem examination are due to be released later.
