Police investigating the murder of a woman found dead in a house in Clacton say she had been stabbed in the chest.
Officers were called to a property on Old Road at around 10.50am on Friday after receiving calls from people concerned for the welfare of a woman inside.
When they got there they found the body of a woman inside.
A postmortem examination took place yesterday morning and investigators say the preliminary cause of death was "multiple stab wounds to the chest".
25 year-old Scott Hillings, of no fixed address, was arrested on suspicion of murder on Friday evening and charged the next day.
He is due in court today.
