Leah Fray Leicester flat fire death

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

Curtis Moyse, 18, was charged by detectives investigating the death of Leah Fray, whose body was found on Easter Sunday.

The 27-year-old's body was found after emergency services were called to a fire in a flat in Mere Road, Leicester, just after 7am on April 21.

Moyse, of Avonside Drive, Leicester, was charged with rape, murder and arson with intent to endanger life.

He will appear at Leicester Magistrates' Court on Saturday.

A 56-year-old man was also questioned earlier this week over Leah's death, but he was released with no further action.
