A man serving time in jail for the attempted murder of a woman in Romford has now been charged with her murder.

Trevor Baker, 52, currently of HMP Warren Hill, was jailed after he assaulted Carolyn Kemp in Walmer Close in 2009.

Carolyn, aged 34 at the time, was left with permanent brain damage as a result of the attack.

Baker subsequently pleaded guilty to attempted murder and was jailed for 16 years.

Carolyn died in September 2022 and a forensic post-mortem was conducted at Queen’s Hospital in Romford in the following days.

Police say that a causal link was allegedly found between the brain trauma she sustained in the assault and her death.

On Tuesday (December 5), Baker was charged with Carolyn’s murder.

He is now due to appear in custody at Barkingside Magistrates Court on December 18.
