COURT LATEST: Man appears in court charged with murder
A 49-YEAR-OLD man from Daventry has been remanded in custody after appearing in court charged with murder.
Erroll Anglin, of no fixed abode, is charged with the murder of Christine Kerry-Anne Haye-Levy on Tuesday, December 11.
Anglin appeared in Northampton Magistrates’ Court on Thursday, December 13, wearing a black short-sleeved t-shirt and spoke only to confirm his name and date of birth.
The case was committed to Northampton Crown Court where he appeared the following day, Friday December 14, when he was remanded in custody until April.
It follows an incident in Jervis Close on the Southbrook estate in the early hours of Tuesday, December 11, when a 36-year-old woman died.
Ms Haye-Levy, a mother of two, sustained serious injuries before staggering to a neighbour’s home for help.
Police say they were called out at 2.15am to an address at nearby Grenville Close to find a woman bleeding heavily from her head. She was taken to Northampton General Hospital where she died a short while later.
A forensic post mortem held on Tuesday night at Leicester Royal Infirmary revealed she died from internal bleeding as the result of a stab wound to her collarbone which penetrated her lung. There were four other significant stab injuries to the woman’s face, chest and arm.
Two young children, aged five and two, were recovered safe and well from the property in Jervis Close passed to social services.
Neighbours who live near the scene have expressed their shock at the news.
Pamela Jones, who lives on Grenville Close, said: “I am very shocked to hear something like this has happened in Daventry. All you normally get in Daventry is the occasional argument, all the people around here are very lovely and friendly.”
Another Grenville Close resident, who asked to remain anonymous, said: “I couldn’t believe it when I heard. We didn’t hear anything during the night.
“When we woke up in the morning, all we were told by the police is that there had been a serious incident and to keep my children away from the area.
“The lady who died was very lovely and the kids were as good as gold.”
Another neighbour said: “I am shocked and surprised that something like this could happen on our doorstep.”
Another neighbour commented: “I know the Southbrook doesn’t have a great reputation but you still don’t expect something like this to happen.”
But police have been quick to reassure the public that this incident is a one-off.
A police spokesman said: “Serious incidents such as this are thankfully very rare in the Daventry area.
“This incident was quickly contained, no one else was at risk of being harmed and we will continue to work closely with our partners to ensure that Daventry remains a safe place to live and work.”
