Police say teacher-year-old Kosi Selamaz is accused of killing a female teacher near her home in London.
British police say they have charged a man with the murder of female teacher Sabina Nessa, who was found dead near her home in London.
Nessa, 28, left her home in Kidbrook, south London, on the evening of September 1, a five-minute walk from a local park to a bar where she was to meet a friend.
He never arrived and his body was found in the park about 24 hours later covered with leaves.
Police said Monday they charged 36-year-old Kosi Selamaz, who is due to appear in London’s Wilsden Magistrate’s Court on Tuesday.
The suspect was reportedly working as a food delivery driver.
Police had earlier released CCTV footage of the man killed on the night of Nesar, the day he was killed, asking him to contact those he knew.
Police said the man was thought to be carrying a red object, which he may have been trying to cover.
Nessa was a teacher at Rush Green Primary School in Catford, south east London.
Vigils were held in local areas and across the UK to commemorate Nessa and highlight violence against women.
On Friday, hundreds of people, including his sister, gathered to light a candle at Pegler Square in London.
Nessa’s sister Jebina Yasmin Islam broke down while addressing the crowd.
“Words can’t describe how we feel, it feels like we’re stuck in a nightmare and can’t get out of it – our world is broken, we’re just lost for words,” he said. “No family has to go through what we’re going through.”
Nessa’s death has raised concerns that women on the streets of the UK capital are not safe.
The murder comes six months after a police officer abducted, raped and murdered another woman in south London in March, demanding widespread public outrage and action.
The Evard case has shocked the country and thousands have taken to the streets to condemn the violence against women.
