A man has been charged with the murder of an 80-year-old woman whose body was found in a garage at an allotment.
Rahim Mohammadi, 40, of Goldsmith Row, east London, was charged on Sunday with the murder of Lea Adri-Soejoko, the Metropolitan Police said.
The pensioner's body was discovered on Tuesday in Colindale, north-west London, in a lock-up store at the allotment where she was secretary.
Mohammadi will appear in custody on Monday at Wimbledon Magistrates' Court.
The family of Ms Adri-Soejoko, who was also known by her maiden name of Hulselman, said she was "vibrant and happy, fit and healthy".
In a statement, they said: "She was a person who stood for the words community, unity, tolerance and love for your neighbour.
"A matriarch, a woman who championed the underdog and did not tolerate prejudice of any kind."
Police said inquiries continue.
