A father has described how he hugged his daughter for the final time the day before she was allegedly murdered by her partner.

Klarissa-Charlene Faith, 26, was found dead by police after they were called to her Nottinghamshire home on Monday.

Her father, David Pain, said he was "incredibly proud" of his daughter, who had become a mother just 21 months before her death.

Stuart Hall, 47, has appeared in court charged with her murder.

'Loved and missed'

Mr Pain said: "My daughter Klarissa-Charlene has over the last 18 months triumphed over adversity, dealing with the death of her mother, acting as executor of the estate, whilst simultaneously taking on the role of mother herself for the first time.

"I am incredibly proud of the young woman she had become.

"The hug I received from her the day before her death will stay with me forever and she will be loved and missed by all her remaining family."
