A man has been charged with murder after a woman was found dead in a home.

Jason Gowen, 26, is due to appear in court tomorrow, after Fiona Robinson, 37, died from ‘multiple injuries’ at the address in Chorley, Lancashire.

Police said they were called to the property on Congress Street at around 2.30am on Friday following reports of a sudden death.

They then discovered Ms Robinson, who had only moved to the town a year ago from her previous home in Barrow-in-Furness.

Gowen, of Congress Street, was arrested at the scene yesterday evening and taken into custody ahead of his hearing at Preston Magistrates’ Court tomorrow.

Ms Robinson’s family have been informed and are being supported by specially-trained officers, with a post-mortem confirming she had died from ‘multiple injuries’.

Lancashire Police is now appealing for any further information that members of the public may have concerning her death.

Detective chief inspector Mark Haworth-Oates of Lancashire Police’s Major Investigation Team said: ‘First and foremost our thoughts are with Fiona’s loved ones, who are going through unimaginable pain.

‘We are determined to provide answers for them and although we have charged someone our investigation is ongoing.

‘We are appealing for any information that could help us piece together what happened.

‘Perhaps you know something you think could be relevant or perhaps you were in the area on Thursday into the early hours of Friday morning and heard something suspicious.

‘Whatever you know, please get in touch.’

Anyone with information should call 101, quoting log 125 of May 26.
