Becky Watts murder: Second person charged
22 June 2015
From the section Bristol
A second person has been charged with the murder of teenager Becky Watts, whose body parts were found at a house in Bristol in March.
Avon and Somerset Police said new evidence had led to Shauna Hoare being charged with the 16-year-old’s murder.
Ms Hoare’s boyfriend Nathan Matthews has already been charged with murder and is due to stand trial in October.
Police said specialist forensic tests had helped to establish the full circumstances surrounding the death.
The pair also face additional charges in relation to the case, including conspiracy to commit false imprisonment, preventing lawful burial and possession of a prohibited weapon.
They have also been charged with four counts of making indecent images of children, and Mr Matthews has been charged with sexual assault, in relation to other incidents not related to Becky.
