30 May 2012, 06:58

A 28 year old has been charged with murder after a woman's body was found in an underpass in Bracknell.

Muhammad Sharif, 28, from Basemoors in Bracknell, will appear at Slough Magistrates' Court later.

He was charged last night with the murder of Tuanjai Sprengel, 43, and was remanded in custody.

Ms Sprengel's body was discovered at 8am on Sunday morning by two gardeners at an underpass near Bay Drive, Bullbrook, Bracknell.

Thames Valley Police said she died as a result of severe blunt force trauma to the back of the head.

Nearby roads were closed until later on Monday, and a large cordon was in place restricting access to the underpass to enable specialist police officers to examine the scene.

The crime scene is close to a large collection of business units as well as an estate where residents spoke of their shock.

One woman, who did not want to be named, said she would not let her two teenage daughters out at night by themselves now.
