Pair charged with carpenter murder
A man and a woman have been charged with the murder of a Lithuanian man whose body was found in a stream.
Evaldas Svolkinas, 34, a carpenter from Dorking Rise, Romford, Essex, was reported missing last December after he did not turn up for work.
His body was discovered in Carter's Brook stream near Wincanton Road in Romford on December 16.
A post-mortem examination found he died from severe head injuries.
Andrej Malinovskij, 42, of Pheasant Close, Canning Town, east London, and Julija Malinovskaja, 27, of the same address, will appear at Redbridge Magistrates' Court on Monday morning, a spokesman for Essex Police said.
