The husband of a woman found dead in Forest Gate last week is one of two men charged with her murder, police have said.

Amina Bibi, 43, was discovered in her ground floor flat at George Carver House in Station Road by her 11-year-old son and a neighbour last Friday.

A post mortem held on Saturday gave the cause of death as multiple stab wounds.

Today, Mohamed Ali, 64, of the same flat in George Carver House, and 46-year-old Frederick Best, of Kebble Terrace, were charged with Amina’s murder.

Scotland Yard said both would appear in custody at Thames Magistrates’ Court tomorrow.
