Man charged with manslaughter after woman, 23, found dead in flat

A man has been charged after the ‘tragic’ death of a young woman in Lincolnshire.

Julio Jesus, 30, of Beechcroft Road, Grantham, is accused of killing Daniella Espirito Santo, 23, who was found dead at a property in Chestnut Grove, Grantham on Wednesday.

He is due to appear today before magistrates in Lincoln charged with manslaughter and a separate charge of causing actual bodily harm.

Both offences relate to separate incidents on April 8.

Detective Chief Inspector Karl Whiffen, of the East Midlands special operations unit, said he wanted to ‘thank the community for their support during what has been an emotional and tragic time for the family of Daniella’.

He added: ‘The assistance and support my team has received is very much appreciated.

‘I continue to appeal to anyone who has information that will help our investigation to contact me and anyone who was in the area around 11.30pm on Wednesday evening, who saw or heard anything unusual.’
