A woman has been charged with the murder of a mother-of-four in Luton.
Sabah Khan, 26, is accused of killing 34-year-old Saima Khan at a house in Overstone Road, Luton, Bedfordshire Police said.
The 34-year-old mother was found lying in a pool of blood at the property on Monday 23 May.
Sabah Khan, who lives in Overstone Road, was arrested on Tuesday and has been remanded in custody to appear at the town’s magistrates’ court on Thursday.
Bedfordshire Police refused to comment on the relationship between the women, but the BBC claimed that the pair were sisters.
In a statement on Wednesday the force said: “Officers from the Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire Major Crime Unit have been investigating the murder after 34-year-old Saima was found dead in a property on Overstone Road on Monday 23 May.
“Sabah Khan, 26, of Overstone Road, Luton, was arrested yesterday and has now been charged with murder.
“She has been remanded in custody pending an appearance at Luton Magistrates’ Court in the morning.”
Mrs Khan’s husband Hafeez Rehman, a taxi driver, said the family’s hearts had been “torn apart” and their four children deprived of their mother, the BBC reported.
