Man charged over pensioner murder

Police have charged a man with the murder of a 72-year-old woman who died in hospital after being found injured by officers called to reports of an assault.

Kazik Pasierbek, 38, will appear at Lincoln Magistrates' Court on Monday charged with killing Margaret Lynette Krawcewicz, Lincolnshire Police said.

Pasierbek, of St Botolph's Crescent, Lincoln, was arrested on Friday after Ms Krawcewicz was taken to Lincoln County Hospital in a serious condition.

Ms Krawcewicz, who was found injured at a property in St Botolph's Crescent at around 6.15am, died in hospital later the same day, prompting detectives to launch a murder inquiry.
