Court hears mur­der charge dis­con­tin­ued

The Wharf - - News -

A mur­der charge against a Po­plar woman has been dropped af­ter tests in­di­cated the vic­tim had most likely killed him­self.

Christie Madeley, 24, of Hertsmere Road ap­peared at Kingston Crown Court on Fri­day but the case was dropped and an in­quest will open on Daniel Mantina, 26, who died in Novem­ber last year.

A post-mortem ex­am­i­na­tion held on Novem­ber 17 last year at West­min­ster Mor­tu­ary gave cause of death as in­cised wounds to the neck.

Fur­ther tests es­tab­lished that the fa­tal in­jury was likely to be self­in­flicted. The charge of mur­der has been dis­con­tin­ued.
