Two Charged Over Boscombe Murder

A man and a woman have been charged with murdering a 22-year-old in Bournemouth.

Phillip Nicholson's body was discovered at a flat in the Boscombe area of the town on Tuesday.

A post-mortem examination found Phillip had died from a stab wound to the neck. He was formally identified by his family who are being supported by specially trained officers.

On Friday evening officers charged Isabalella Gossling, 20 and Richard Moors, 25 - both from Bournemouth and known to the victim with his murder.

They are due before Bournemouth Magistrates Court on Saturday.

Detectives are still appealing for the public’s help, in particular anyone who saw Phillip before his body was discovered.

Due to Dorset Police having had prior contact with people involved, the Force has referred the circumstances leading to the murder to the police watchdog for review.
