Following an investigation by Thames Valley Police’s Major Crime Unit, a man has been charged in connection with the death of a 73-year-old woman in Milton Keynes.
Michael Sargent, aged 77, of Bradwell Road, Loughton, Milton Keynes, was charged last night (22/5) with one count of murder.
The charge is in connection with an incident in Bradwell Road, Loughton, at just after 8am on Saturday (20/5) when officers located an unconscious woman inside a property.
She was given emergency first aid at the scene before being taken to hospital, where she later sadly passed away.
Sargent was arrested on suspicion of murder at the scene.
He is due to appear at Milton Keynes Magistrates’ Court this morning.
The victim has also now been formally identified as Christine Sargent, aged 73, from Milton Keynes.
A Home Office post-mortem examination took place yesterday, with the provisional results being that Christine died as a result of neck compression.
Senior investigating officer Detective Chief Inspector Dejan Avramovic, of the Major Crime Unit, said: “Christine’s family are being supported by specially trained family liaison officers and our thoughts are with them.
“On their behalf, we would ask that their privacy is respected at this extremely distressing time for them.”
