A man has been charged with murder, rape and arson after a woman's body was found in a burning flat.

Curtis Moyse, 18, was charged by Leicestershire Police over the death of Leah Fray earlier this month.

The 27-year-old's body was found by firefighters responding to a blaze in Mere Road, Leicester, just after 07:00 BST on Sunday.

Mr Moyse, of Avonside Drive, Leicester, will appear at the city's magistrates' court later.
