A MAN has this morning been charged with the murder of a heavily pregnant woman whose baby son later died.
Aaron McKenzie, 25, is accused of murdering 26-year-old Kelly Mary Fauvrelle in her bed in Croydon last month.
He has also been charged with the manslaughter of her baby son, Riley, Scotland Yard said.
McKenzie, of Peckham Park Road, South London, also faces one count of possession of an offensive weapon.
Kelly was stabbed to death at home in Thornton Heath, South London, in the early hours of June 29 – in a crime that stunned the nation.
Little Riley – who was delivered in an emergency C-section at the scene – died four days later on July 3.
Postal worker Kelly was found dead in her bedroom by her horrified sister.
The mum-to-be – who was eight months pregnant – had held a baby shower for her unborn son just days earlier.
Kelly’s mum, brothers and sister were all at home when she was attacked in her ground-floor bedroom at the rear of the house.
They heard her screams – but the killer escaped without being seen.
Kelly had earlier survived a cancer scare and stunned doctors by becoming pregnant.
Angela Whitter, of the Communication Workers Union, said Kelly was “over the moon when she became pregnant.”
She added: “People were always complimenting her on her growing bump and she was so looking forward to her baby’s arrival.”
Two men had previously been arrested on suspicion of murder.
One, aged 37, was released with no further action – and a second, aged 29, has been released on bail until early August.
McKenzie – who was arrested on Thursday – is due to appear at Camberwell Green Magistrates’ Court on Monday July 15 at 10am.
