A serving soldier has been charged with the murder of his girlfriend.

Leanne McNuff, 24, was found by police at her home in Droylsden, Greater Manchester, on Sunday night with multiple stab wounds and died a short time later.

Ian Lowe, 25, who is a member of the 1st Battalion the Duke of Lancaster's Regiment, will appear before Tameside Magistrates' Court tomorrow.

In a statement released by Greater Manchester Police (GMP) yesterday, Leanne's parents Margaret and James said: "Leanne was a beautiful, kind-hearted and generous girl, who lived and breathed for her four-year-old son Jaden, who in turn idolised and adored his mummy.
