A man is to appear in court charged with the murder of a young mother found stabbed to death at her home.
Sara West, 21, was found dead in Aspley Lane, Aspley, Nottingham, at about 1.15pm on Wednesday.
It has just emerged Miss West, who died of stab wounds, was mother to a son just nine weeks old.
Nottinghamshire Police charged James Sullivan, 22, of Maltby Close, Aspley, with Miss West's murder on Friday night and he will appear at Nottingham Magistrates' Court.
Miss West's father Roger West paid tribute to his daughter as being like "summer warmth on a cold day".
Mr West, from Nottingham, said: "The most important thing in the world to Sara was her family. If she loved someone, she would do absolutely anything for that person."
He said the 21-year-old, who has two sisters, was a proud mother to son Joshua, who is nearly nine weeks old.
"She lost a baby last year, and she was devastated," he said.
"When Joshua came along her world completely changed - all of a sudden, her dreams had come true and she was so proud and happy.
"She spoke about going to college to become a midwife - she had the rest of her life ahead of her. It's hard to cope and it does not seem real right now. She was like summer warmth on a cold day - she was a girl who would make any dad proud."
