A suspect has been charged with murder following the death of a woman in Margate.

Kent Police was called at around 3.10am on Saturday 16 July 2022 to a report that a woman had been assaulted at a private property in Elfrida Close. Officers attended the address with South East Coast Ambulance Service and the victim, a woman in her 30s, was discovered with injuries consistent with stab wounds. She was later pronounced deceased.

Detectives from the Kent and Essex Serious Crime Directorate have since been carrying out enquiries at the address and a property in Ramsgate.

As part of the investigation, 38-year-old Thomas Allen, of Elfrida Close, has now been charged with murder and possession of an offensive weapon.

Kelsie Murphy, 26, of West Dumpton Lane, Ramsgate, has been charged with assisting an offender.

Both defendants are due to appear before Folkestone Magistrates’ Court on Tuesday 19 July.
