Man, 65, charged with murder of pensioner


A 65-year-old man has been charged with the murder of an 85-year-old woman in east London.

Rosina Coleman’s body was discovered by a handyman working at her home in Ashmour Gardens, Romford, at about 11.30am on Tuesday.

A post-mortem found that she died from a blunt force trauma to her head and neck.

Police said Paul Prause, of Romford, who was arrested on Friday, has been charged with her murder.

The 65-year-old was remanded in custody and will appear at Redbridge Magistrates’ Court on Monday.

Mrs Coleman was a former seamstress and a mother of two.

She had lived in her family home for decades with her husband Bill, who died about 11 years ago.
