Police have charged a woman with murder following the death of a man at a home in Hyde, Greater Manchester. Rees Howarth, 28, was found in critical condition by emergency services on Sunday, April 23, on Thorsby Avenue. Thorsby Avenue resident Katie Yeomans, 27, has now been charged with his murder and was due to appear in court today.
Greater Manchester Police announced the charge earlier this morning, according to Manchester Evening News, stating that officers were called to reports of a domestic disturbance at the property at around 2.55pm on April 23.
Officers and medical professionals found the man in his 20s but couldn’t save him, and he was pronounced dead on the scene.
Police arrested two women, aged 19 and 27, on the scene on suspicion of attempted murder and later for suspicion of murder and took them into custody for questioning.
Katie Yeomans was charged with the murder, while a 19-year-old was released with police taking no further action.
GMP said in a statement that she was to appear at Manchester Magistrates Court on April 26.
DCI Mark Davis of GMP’s Major Incident Team said the service’s thoughts are “with the victim’s family” and that police would provide support.
DCI Davis stressed that the incident was isolated and posed “no wider risk to the public” while asking people to refrain from speculating on the investigation.
He added that Mr Howarth’s family has issued a statement following the 28-year-old’s death.
He said: “His family said that Rees was an ‘active and outing man, who was funny and loving. He had a heart of gold and was caring and kind-hearted.
“He was a larger-than-life character who will be sadly missed by all who loved him’ and have expressed that their family and loved ones have privacy while they grieve for their loss.”
Greater Manchester Police continues to appeal to the general public for information relating to the investigation.
