Police have charged a 37 year old woman with murder after a man was found stabbed to death at a flat.

The body of Simon Foster, 45, was found at his two bed home in Albert Street, Kettering, Northamptonshire early on Tuesday 20 September 2011.  The woman - from Burton Lattimer - was arrested at the scene.

In a tribute statement issued through Northamptonshire Police, Simon said: "Simon had a close and loving family with whom he was in regular, sometimes daily, contact. His mother, son, grandson, daughters, sister and wider extended family are utterly devastated at the death of Simon.

"The family would like to thank Simon's numerous friends and our community for their love and support over the past few days. We would like to ask for privacy to allow us all to mourn the loss of a warm, loving generous and sensitive man."

"He will be dreadfully missed by everyone who knew him or had been helped by him."
