A MAN has been charged with the mur­der of a 25-year-old woman in Hayes.

Billy White, 22, of Pinkwell Lane, Hayes, was re­manded in cus­tody at Uxbridge Mag­is­trates’ Court on Mon­day. He is sched­uled to ap­pear at the Old Bai­ley to­day (Wed­nes­day) for a bail hear­ing, fol­lowed by a plea and case man­age­ment hear­ing on March 23.

White was charged on Sun­day af­ter an in­ves­ti­ga­tion by of­fi­cers from the Metropoli­tan Po­lice’s homi­cide and ma­jor crime com­mand. Po­lice were called at 5.10am on Satur­day, fol­low­ing re­ports of a woman suf­fer­ing stab wounds at a home in Pinkwell Lane.

Of­fi­cers, Lon­don Am­bu­lance Ser­vice and Lon­don’s Air Am­bu­lance at­tended.

The vic­tim was pro­nounced dead at hos­pi­tal shortly be­fore 6.30am.

A post-mortem ex­am­i­na­tion at Uxbridge mor­tu­ary on Satur­day gave the cause of death as a stab in­jury.
